Full dentures replace a full set of teeth inside the mouth. Full dentures are made for the mouth after the teeth have been removed, and the bone has begun to heal.
Immediate Vs. Conventional Dentures
Dentures that are made for immediate use after the teeth have been removed are known as immediate dentures. Immediate dentures may not continue to fit as the bones and gums heal, and thus are considered to be only a temporary option until the permanent dentures, known as conventional dentures, can be made.
Partial dentures are designed to fill a gap between natural teeth. Partial dentures are held in place with a metal framework that holds the denture in place.
Implant Retained Dentures
An implant retained denture is a denture that is held in place with implants that are fused to the jaw. After all the teeth are removed, the implants are put into place.
Once the implants have healed sufficiently, the dentures themselves are put into place on the implants. Compared to standard dentures, implant retained dentures are held firmly into place. They’re less likely to slip than standard dentures.
Which One is Right For You?
The type of denture that’s right for you depends on your budget, the health of your jaw, how many teeth need to be removed and other factors. If you’re missing teeth or need to have several teeth extracted, your dentist in Lompoc, CA can help you decide which type of dentures are best for you.
