Dentures are dental prosthetics used to replace missing teeth and their surrounding tissues. They are typically made from acrylic or other materials and are designed to look and function like natural teeth. Dentures can be complete, replacing all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, or partial, replacing only some missing teeth. There are several types of dentures available, and the type of denture used depends on the patient’s needs and preferences. Here are some of the different kinds and types of dental dentures

Complete Dentures: These are designed to replace all the teeth in a patient’s mouth. They are typically used when a patient has lost all their teeth or when any remaining teeth need to be extracted. Complete dentures come in two forms: conventional and immediate dentures.

Conventional dentures are placed in the patient’s mouth after the gum tissue has healed from any extractions, which usually takes several weeks. Immediate dentures, on the other hand, are placed immediately after the teeth are removed.


Partial Dentures & Implant-Supported Dentures

Partial dentures are used when the patient has some natural teeth remaining in their mouth. They are designed to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and prevent the remaining teeth from shifting. Partial dentures are attached to the remaining teeth using clasps or connectors.
Implant-supported dentures are designed to be anchored in place by dental implants. The implants are surgically placed in the jawbone and act as artificial roots. The denture is then attached to the implants, providing a secure and stable fit.

Overdentures & Immediate Dentures

Overdentures are similar to implant-supported dentures, but they are attached to natural teeth instead of dental implants. This type of denture can help preserve any remaining natural teeth while also providing support and stability to the denture.

Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the teeth are extracted. These dentures are designed to be temporary and are used while the gum tissue heals. Once the gum tissue has healed, the patient will need to be fitted with a more permanent denture. This can be often achieved with a denture reline.
