Immediate vs. Conventional Dentures: Which is Right for You?

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Denture clinics specialize in creating these appliances to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

A Complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate”. A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4 to 6 weeks.  During this time the patient will go without teeth.  Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Reasons for dentures:

  • Complete Denture – Loss of all teeth in an arch.
  • Partial Denture – Loss of several teeth in an arch.
  • Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.

Denture Clinics and the Process of Getting Dentures

The process of obtaining dentures typically involves multiple appointments spanning several weeks at denture clinics. Highly accurate impressions and measurements are taken during these visits to craft your personalized denture. Several “try-in” sessions might be needed to ensure the denture’s shape, color, and fit are just right. During the final appointment at the denture clinic, your dentist will meticulously adjust and place the finished denture, ensuring it feels natural and comfortable.

It is common to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and potential speech and chewing challenges initially, but these issues typically diminish as your muscles and tissues acclimate to the new dentures.

You will be given care instructions for your new dentures.  Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new dentures.
