Dentures have commonly been a popular way to replace either a single tooth, or all your teeth. Thanks to our modern day technology, dentures are more effective and efficient then ever before.
What many people may not know is there are three different kinds of dentures.
• Conventional dentures: Conventional dentures are the full set of artificial teeth that fit your gumline and jaw perfectly.
• Partial dentures: Partial dentures are meant to replace a few consecutive missing teeth when you still have natural teeth remaining in your smile. When you wear the appliance, you will place it in the gap of your smile and clasp it to the remaining teeth that lie on both sides. This will help keep your appliance in place.
• Immediate dentures: Immediate dentures are removable dentures that are inserted on the same day that your remaining teeth are removed. Luckily, through the healing process you can still wear these dentures.
There are many reasons people turn to dentures for their oral care. The most common reasons for needing dentures include tooth loss from periodontal disease, tooth fractures, tooth decay, and tooth extractions.
