A patient can lose his or her teeth for many reasons, ranging from tooth decay, periodontal disease, etc, etc… the list goes on and on. However, in today’s society dentures have come a long way and are more comfortable than ever. There are two types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.
Complete dentures involve removing all remaining teeth and allowing the gum tissue to heal. The healing process on average ranges 8 weeks to 12 weeks. Once the healing process has been completed, a patient is ready for placement. During the healing process, to avoid being toothless, patient’s can utilize what’s called immediate dentures.
