Dentures are prosthetic devices that your dentist constructs to replace missing teeth. The soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity support the dentures. Typically, conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many different denture designs. Some of these different types of dentures rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants. If removal of teeth is necessary, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as all teeth are extracted so patients don’t have to without teeth for a long period of time. Typically, bones and gums mostly shrink during the healing period following tooth removal. This put immediate dentures at a disadvantage because they require more adjustments to fit properly during healing. Also, generally immediate dentures are only a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.
