Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. They are removable appliances made to appear the same as natural teeth and enhance your smile. Dentures can be partial- meaning they fill the space of missing teeth and keep remaining teeth from moving, or complete- replacing all teeth when no natural teeth remain.
There are two types of complete dentures: conventional and immediate. Conventional dentures are only made once a patient’s gums have healed and all teeth are gone. This can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks. Immediate dentures allow patients to avoid going without teeth as they are made ahead of time and promptly placed after all teeth are gone.

When do you need dentures?
Dentures are necessary when many or all teeth are missing. Teeth can fall out because of accidents, poor dental hygiene, tooth decay, gum disease, and even old age. You might need dentures if you don’t visit your dentist regularly, have bleeding or swollen gums, loose or shifting teeth, toothaches, or trouble chewing and eating some foods. Visit your dentist to avoid needing dentures later on in your life.
