There are two main types of dentures, which we will take a deep look in this post.

Partial Dentures

These dentures are used to replace multiple teeth, but they are sometimes used for single teeth replacement as well. Partial dentures are used when some teeth are present. They are used on young individuals who have suffered from teeth injuries or gum disease. A partial denture is attached to the teeth with clasps around the real teeth.

Complete Dentures

On the other hand, complete dentures are full dentures, which are mostly used when all of the patient’s teeth are missing. They are made after an individual’s teeth are removed, and the gum has started to heal.There are two types of dentures that fall under the complete denture category ; immediate dentures and conventional dentures.

Conventional Dentures

Conventional Dentures are made and ready to place in a person’s mouth three months after their teeth have been removed.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate Dentures are prepared earlier so that they can be placed as soon as the patient’s teeth have been removed. Its main advantage is that you do not have to stay without teeth during the healing period. However, because gums and bones shrink over time, these dentures call for adjustments, especially during the healing period. Immediate dentures ought to be a temporary solution while the conventional dentures are being made.
