Dentures are portable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth. Dentures helped restore the smile and designed to look natural so that the patient will feel comfortable wearing it. A denture may be uncomfortable at first for some patients, but they will eventually get used to it.
What are the Different Types of Dentures?
After the healing of the gums and tissues, dentures are then placed in the mouth.
After the removal of the remaining teeth, dentures are then placed immediately. However, the patient needs to have a follow up check up to the dentist within the healing process to realigned the dentures.
If the patient still has few remaining teeth, the best option is to have a partial denture. A partial denture is made of bridges and artificial teeth attached to a gum-like plastic base to support the stability of the denture.
