There are two main types of dentures: complete and partial. As the names suggest, complete dentures are put in place when no natural teeth remain and partial dentures take the place of only some natural teeth.

For complete dentures, you can either get conventional or immediate dentures. Conventional dentures can be inserted after the mouth has healed from having the teeth removed. Immediate dentures can be used while the mouth is healing, which makes them nice for the transitional period of your mouth healing after tooth extraction. Since your gums and mouth will change and shrink as they heal, immediate dentures may need to be adjusted to fit properly are typically considered a more temporary solution.

For partial dentures, the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to a gum-colored base. In situations where a partial denture is needed, it’s sometimes good to use a bridge, which consists of permanently adding an artificial tooth that is attached the surrounding teeth with crowns.
