A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available -- complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Commonly used for those who are not candidates for implant or fixed bridge.
Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or " implant supported over dentures."
(A) Conventional :- 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.
(B) Implant supported over dentures: - has been proved to be the best option to restore all the lost teeth in jaws. They satisfy patient’s expectation, improve quality of life and above all restore chewing function.
