Complete dentures are made up of two parts: the base and the artificial teeth. The base is the foundation for the replacement teeth. It also restores defective hard and soft tissues. The artificial teeth consist of crowns that function and look like your natural teeth. They help you chew and speak normally.
If you choose to get complete dentures, they can be conventional or immediate.
Conventional dentures are fabricated to conform to your mouth with near-perfect accuracy. These are placed after your teeth have been removed and the gum tissue heals. This process generally takes several months.
Immediate dentures are made in advance before your teeth have been removed. There is no waiting period like with conventional dentures, but you may have to have your prosthetics relined as your jawbone shrinks during the healing process.
Complete dentures have been used for years, but advances in dentistry have made them more beneficial than ever. Some of the advantages patients can enjoy with these prosthetics are listed below:
