Dentures and partials are artificial teeth crafted for individuals to replace missing or damaged teeth. The primary purpose of dentures and partials is to restore oral health and function and to alleviate pain caused by damaged, cracked, or decaying teeth. Dentures come in a variety of styles, including temporary, permanent, removable, or fixed. You will be able to discuss with your dentist what style will work best for your situation and lifestyle.
There are approximately five different types of dentures that affect how long they are meant to be in the mouth and what the creation and application procedure will be like.
The process of acquiring dentures will require multiple visits to the same dentist. The first step is an oral exam, where the dentist speaks with you and examines your teeth to see what kind of denture is required. A mold of the upper and lower jaw is created, and any teeth that need to be extracted will be. While the mouth heals, you will be given temporary dentures until the full set is complete.
