Your smile is the first thing others notice about you. If you are missing part of your smile, you won't have the confidence to let others see you-the real you-that only your smile reveals. Fortunately, you don't have to hide your broken smile any longer! There are full and partial dentures available to you.
Full dentures are a completely new set of teeth for your mouth. There are three different types of full dentures-immediate, conventional, and overdentures. Immediate and conventional dentures are described as such depending on the time of their implantation. Your mouth must be completely free of your own natural teeth before your full dentures can be implanted. If you choose to have your dentures put in as soon as your natural teeth are removed, they would be called immediate dentures. Conventional dentures are not implanted until your mouth has completely healed from extraction of your existing teeth. One process allows you to have teeth (dentures) in your mouth as you heal from the extraction, and the other allows you to heal first before you have your dentures fitted and implanted. Overdentures are full dentures that are placed over your existing teeth, and only some mouths are suitable for this procedure.
Removable Partial Dentures (RPD) allow you to use some of your own teeth; they replace only the already missing teeth. RPD's are classified by the quality of materials used. There are acrylic, cast metal, and flexible framework RPD's. Each of these uses the various types of materials to attach artificial teeth to your jaw. They also vary in price according to the materials used.
