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.
Partial Dentures & Implant-Supported Dentures
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.
