Once most of the teeth in the mouth have been lost or the majority of teeth cannot be saved a complete denture may be recommended. Complete dentures are made to replace all of the teeth in one or both arches of the mouth. If teeth need to be removed a denture can be delivered on the same day as the extractions. This type of denture is called an immediate denture. Immediate dentures all you to always have teeth in your mouth and maintain a nice smile.
Removable Partial Dentures
When a few teeth are missing a partial denture is a great way to replace the teeth and improve both aesthetics and function. Partial dentures can be made of either metal or acrylic and use the remaining teeth as anchors. Advances in dental materials have recently introduced different types of removable partial dentures from which to choose.
