Dentures can be used to replace teeth that have been lost due to trauma, decay, or gum disease. It is important to replace missing teeth, not only because important to our daily diet but because they help support the facial muscles and are critical for speech.
There are two different types of removable full dentures; immediate and conventional. Immediate dentures are typically made when the patient’s existing natural teeth are being removed and the new dentures are delivered the day of the extractions.
Conventional dentures are typically made when existing dentures are being replaced.
