What are complete dentures?

Complete dentures or full dentures are removable appliances that are used for the replacement of all missing teeth in one or both of the dental arches of a patient. These are artificial sets of teeth that are used for maintaining functional integrity of oral tissues, thereby helping the patient in the process of mastication.

Dentures are designed by a prosthodontist for edentulous patients and are custom-made in a dental lab after taking the impressions of both the upper and lower jaws. The full dentures are made with acrylic based material that snugly fits over the gum tissues of the jaw arches.

What are the types of Complete Dentures?

Conventional complete dentures : These are the most popular types of denture. They fabricated 6-8 weeks following the extraction of the last tooth from the respective dental arch. These are designed only after all the soft tissue in and around the extraction area is healed and therefore requires a waiting period of at least 6-8 weeks. A conventional complete denture procedure requires 3 to 4 sittings with the dentist.

Immediate complete dentures : It is designed and inserted in a patient’s mouth immediately after the extraction of the teeth. The dentist obtains precise arch measurements with an alginate impression before proceeding to teeth extraction and prepares both the maxillary and mandibular jaw models for furthering the treatment. An immediate complete denture procedure requires 2 sessions, excluding the follow-up visits.

How long does the entire process take?

The entire process of complete denture fabrication may take 10-15 days, during which the patient has to pay 3-4 consecutive visits to the dental clinic. The same time frame applies to immediate dentures, although only two visits to the dentist are required.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are the dental appliances used for the replacement of a single missing tooth or a set of teeth in either the maxillary or mandibular dental arch. They are particularly beneficial for people who have lost only a few teeth from their oral cavity while the rest of their teeth are in good condition. The dentures are custom-made for each individual patient and are constructed by a prosthodontist or a denturist. Partial dentures are the artificial teeth which are used to fill up gaps created due to tooth loss and to restore the functional integrity of missing structures.

Partial Dentures help improve the aesthetics of the mouth and also the process of mastication.

  • 2. Implant Supported Prosthesis
