Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and can replace both full and partial sets of teeth.
For full sets, any remaining teeth are removed. There are two common approaches for full sets:
With Conventional Full Dentures, all the teeth are removed, and the tissue is given time to heal. This typically takes several months, and the patient is without teeth during that time. Once the healing is complete, the dentures are created.
With Immediate Full Dentures, measurements are performed before the teeth are removed, and dentures are ready immediately afterward. The gum tissue will change shape as it heals, and the dentures will need to be tightened later.
