Complete Dentures

Complete dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” They are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. A conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about eight to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.

The process for producing the Dentures Humble TX is quick and painless. So once the molding and design are complete, it only takes a day or two to have fully functional dentures.

Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance. They are positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time. This is true especially during the healing period following tooth removal.

Therefore, there is a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures. They require more adjustments to fit properly. During the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.

Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base. This is connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.

Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position. Partial dentures help greatly to keep your remaining teeth. Regular cleaning is still necessary but you can greatly reduce the levels of shifting that occur.

This keeps your teeth in place for years. Your remaining teeth have a better chance of staying where they belong. What’s not to love about that?
