Replace all your missing teeth. Patients often look at complete dentures to restore a confident smile.
Immediate dentures are dentures that are placed immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. They are made to fit before the teeth are removed, and are inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted. Immediate dentures are usually made of acrylic and can be used to replace one or more teeth. They are designed to provide temporary support and stability while the gums heal. Immediate dentures are a good choice for those who need to replace their teeth quickly, such as those who need to attend a special event or have a job interview. They can also be used to improve a person’s appearance while they wait for their permanent dentures to be made.
Digital dentures are a type of denture that uses digital technology to create a precise fit for the patient. They are created using a digital impression system, which takes a 3D scan of the patient’s mouth and uses computer-aided design (CAD) software to design the dentures. The dentures are then 3D printed using a special resin material that is strong and durable. Digital dentures provide a more comfortable fit than traditional dentures and can last up to five years with proper care.
This denture is more personalized and provides superior fit, function, comfort and aesthetics. These dentures require more appointments to complete, but are of the highest quality, available in acrylic or porcelain teeth.
Partial dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that hold the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. They are made to closely match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth so that they blend in with your smile. Partial dentures are usually made of acrylic, a type of plastic, and are often held in place by metal clasps that attach to your natural teeth.

There are two main types of dentures, and they’re the following:
You need to review the following factors before deciding which is the best option for you:
Here are the things you can expect while wearing dentures the first time:
You can reintroduce solid foods once your mouth starts to get comfortable with your dentures. Typically, it may take 3–4 weeks before it’s safe to eat solid or harder foods after getting dentures. But ensure to start slowly with bite-sized pieces and easy-to-chew foods.
You may feel pain wearing temporary dentures after having your teeth extracted. But painkillers will help alleviate the pain and make you feel comfortable during the early stages of the healing period.
Avoid making adjustments to your dentures on your own. Adjusting your dentures at home can cause false teeth to break. If you’re dealing with any issues with your dentures, have them adjusted by your dentist.
