Dentures are artificial teeth designed and fabricated as aesthetic and functional replacements for real teeth.

 

Dentures can come in a variety designs and applications. While a full set of removable dentures, or artificial teeth, remains a popular option for those with edentulism, there are other great options.

 

Today, patients can choose between conventional dentures, also referred to as immediate dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported denture solutions.

 

Each different denture treatment has its own set of advantages and disadvantages that every consumer should consider before making a final decision.

There Are Five Most Common Types of Dentures!

What Are Dentures?

1

Full Dentures

Full dentures are the full sets of removable teeth and gums that come to mind when most people think of dentures.

2

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures (and flexible partial dentures) are dentures designed to fill in a gap.

3

PARTIAL DENTURES  (Cantilever)

Bridge dentures come in three main varieties, fixed bridge dentures, implant-supported dentures, and cantilever dentures.

4

IMMEDIATE DENTURES

It often takes time to custom craft dentures or manufacture precision prosthetics (although some advanced dental clinics can do so rather quickly due to advanced technology, cutting-edge equipment, and expertise to do so in-house.

5

Implant supported dentures

Implant-supported dentures combine the stability, aesthetics, and longevity of conventional implants with the affordability and relative ease of replacement associated with traditional dentures.
