Depending on how many teeth need replacement, you might need either complete dentures or partial dentures.
A partial denture is suitable when you need to replace only one or more teeth. Partial dentures connect to a metal frame that helps maintain the placement of your dentures.
Complete dentures, which come in two types, conventional and immediate, replace all the teeth. This process involves extracting some natural teeth as well.
Conventional dentures are placed 8-12 weeks after teeth extraction to give time for the gums to heal fully. This also assures minimal to no adjustment needed for the dentures.
Immediate dentures, on the other hand, require preparation. There is no need to wait for the gums to heal before placing your dentures. Once they do heal, you will need to go back to your dentist for an adjustment.
