Complete Dentures

Complete dentures can be either conventional or immediate. Made after the teeth are removed the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed. Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.


However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. Therefore a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.

Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position. A precision partial denture is removable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach to the adjacent crowns. This is a more natural looking appliance.

Implant Supported Denture

This is a denture that is supported by an implant. Implant supported denture is used when a person does not have any teeth in the jaw to support a denture. Please read the link below for more details:

Alternatives to dentures

Dental implants can be used to support permanently cemented bridges eliminating the need for a denture. The cost is usually slightly higher but the implants and bridges more closely resemble the feel of real teeth. Dental implants are becoming the alternative to dentures but not everyone is a candidate for implants. This is evaluated on a case by case basis.
