What are dentures?
Denture implants are an artificial replacement to several missing. The denture fits in the mouth with false teeth built in, to provide an efficient alternative to the missing teeth. With this in mind, some people only need a denture for a small part of their mouth as a partial teeth replacement and others need something more drastic. There are two main types of dentures: partial and permanent.
Partial Dentures: A partial removable denture is used for an individual who is missing one or more teeth but still has many of their natural teeth remaining. Instead of having to cover their natural pearly whites, the denture works around their remaining teeth and replicates their colour through the artificial teeth on the denture.
Full Mouth Complete Dentures: Otherwise known as an all on-4 dental implants, this is a more complicated and drastic denture, as the complete denture acts as a replacement to several missing teeth on a full arch. In some cases unhealthy or obscure teeth may need to be removed in order to use a complete denture. This is a lengthy procedure that may take months in order for the gums to heal.
