Dentures may replace all or only some of the teeth. The dentures that replace all the teeth are known as full or complete dentures and they rest on the gums that cover the jawbones.
Dentures that replace some but not all of the teeth are known as partial dentures. Partial dentures are a simple and affordable solution for replacing one or more missing teeth.Then there are immediate dentures that are inserted on the same day, immediately following the removal of natural teeth.
Finally, there are implant retained dentures also known as dental implants. Unlike conventional dentures, removable implant-retained dentures are supported by and attached to a minimum of two dental implants. Implant-retained dentures have special attachments which connect onto the implants secured in the mouth. Implant-retained dentures provide stability, increased chewing efficiency, retention and also eliminate the need for denture adhesives.
