Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. There are two types of full dentures: Conventional Full Dentures and Immediate Full Dentures.
Conventional full dentures are utilized when all of the teeth are removed and the tissue is given time to heal before the dentures are placed. Immediate full dentures are made prior to having your teeth removed. After your teeth are removed, the dentures are immediately placed in your mouth.
Partial dentures are another option when you do not need to have all of your teeth removed. This is similar to a bridge, but it is not a permanent fixture in your mouth.
