Dentures in Gilbert, AZ
Also known as false teeth, dentures are prosthetic devices constructed 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. Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positions as soon as teeth are removed. Because of this the patient does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. Bones and gums mostly shrink over a period of time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. A disadvantage of immediate dentures compared to conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during healing. Also, generally immediate dentures are only a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.
