Specialty Dentures are removable replacement teeth. If you have no healthy teeth, a complete denture gives you a brand new replacement set, while a partial denture replaces just some missing teeth. There are different types of dentures for different situations. We can explain which may be the best for your circumstances.
Why dentures are important
If you are missing one or more teeth, you are particularly aware of their importance to your appearance, and dental health. All your teeth work together to help you chew, speak, and smile. When teeth are missing, it is difficult to do these things. Even the loss of a back tooth may cause you mouth to shift and your face to look older. Fortunately, missing teeth can be replaced, and they should be. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth, and they will even improve your look by giving you a more confident smile and help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.
Types of dentures
The two main types of dentures are conventional and immediate dentures. Conventional dentures are made and inserted after the remaining teeth have been extracted and the tissues have healed. Immediate dentures are inserted right away after the removal of remaining teeth. With immediate dentures the obvious advantage is that one does not to have to go without teeth. Over dentures are dentures secured and anchored in your mouth by implants.
