A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. We have two types of dentures; complete denture which replace all of the teeth, and a partial denture which fills in the missing teeth spaces. A dental denture can be conventional or immediate. A conventional denture is installed after all of the teeth have been removed and the extraction sites have been healed completely which normally requires 2 months or more, while an immediate denture is installed as soon as the teeth are removed.
Benefits of Dentures
