There are two types of dentures:

  1. Complete Dentures have a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums. The upper denture covers the roof of your mouth; the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. Complete dentures may be either conventional (your teeth are removed and allowed to heal for about six weeks) or immediate (the denture is made in advance and placed directly following the removal of your teeth).
  2. Partial Dentures rest on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes crowns are placed on some of your natural teeth and serve as anchors. Partial dentures are a removable alternative to dental bridges.

Other things to know:

  • We will help you choose the best type of denture for your unique needs.
  • Your new dentures may feel a little awkward for the first few weeks.
  • Eating and speaking may take some patience and practice, while the muscles of your cheeks and tongue learn to hold your dentures in place.
  • Although they take some getting used to and may never feel the same as your natural teeth, today’s dentures are amazingly natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
