Full and Partial Dentures

Removable Dentures

Conventional Versus Immediate Full Dentures

There are two types of full dentures. Conventional full dentures are when any remaining teeth are removed and the tissue is given time to heal. Once healed, the full set of dentures is placed. The time it takes for the tissue to heal could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. During this time, the patient will go without teeth.


Immediate full dentures, by contrast, are placed in the same dental visit. Prior to pulling the remaining teeth, Our doctors will take measurements of the patient’s mouth. When the patient returns for the procedure and directly after the patient’s remaining teeth are removed, the dentures are placed. The patient’s jawbone and mouth may shift in the healing process, so Our doctors would recommend a followup visit to check the fit of the dentures. Over time, the dentures will need to be tightened as the patient’s mouth heals.


There are also partial dentures for patients with healthy teeth remaining. These are similar to a bridge but are removable.

How Long Will It Take to Adjust to Dentures?

Dentures will take time to get used to. The flesh-colored base of the dentures is placed over the tops of your gums. Some patients feel that they get in the way or are a bit bulky. The dentures may feel loose at times. Because of this, they may affect the way you talk or eat. Over time, they become less of a nuisance and you’ll feel comfortable with them.
