Replacement teeth or dentures can be of benefit to you whether you are missing all or just a few of your natural teeth. Dentures can be made to resemble your natural teeth so that there will be little change in your appearance. Dentures may even improve your look by giving a more confident smile and help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.
The two main types of dentures are conventional and immediate dentures. Conventional dentures are made and inserted after the remaining teeth have been extracted and the tissue has healed, which can take several months. Immediate dentures are inserted right away after the removal of remaining teeth. The obvious advantage to immediate dentures is that you don’t have to be without teeth.
