What are Complete Dentures?

Complete dentures are made to replace all missing teeth. Two main types are “conventional” or “immediate” dentures. A conventional denture is made after all the teeth are removed and the tissues have healed, which can take 6 to 8 weeks. During this healing time the patient will not have any teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after all the teeth are removed. In this way the patient will not be without teeth during the healing process. After the tissues will shrink and heal, adjustments will need to be made.

Process of Removable Dental Appliance

The process of getting a removable dental appliance requires several appointments, and can take several weeks or months. Highly accurate impressions or molds and measurements are taken and used to create your custom removable dental appliance. There will be several “try-in” appointments to ensure proper color, shape, and fit. At the final appointment, your dentist will adjust and place the appliance to ensure a comfortable and natural fit.

It is normal to experience increased salivary flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty. This will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to the new removable dental appliance. You will be given instructions on how to care for your new appliance.
