There are several types of it dentures you may have need of in your particular situation. A conventional full denture will be designed to custom fit over all the remaining teeth you have, and these can generally be installed between eight and 12 weeks after any tooth extractions have been made. Once the healing process is complete, your dentist can start taking impressions to get the procedure underway.
An immediate full denture is also called a same-day denture, and this alternative option is designed to be installed on the same day as your tooth extraction
. Many people favor immediate full dentures because they eliminate the waiting time after extraction, and they can actually help expedite healing by protecting oral tissues and gums.
Partial dentures are used by those individuals who only have a few teeth missing, and these are made from a combination of acrylic and metal. They will generally attach to your natural teeth, but they're different than a dental bridge
because they're removable. Implant-supported dentures are an option which is more expensive than conventional dentures, but they have the appeal of anchoring your dentures solidly in your mouth, so that there is no slippage, and so you can eat and speak freely.
