PERMANENT DENTURES

A denture is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth and replaces natural teeth while providing support for the cheeks and lips. Most dentures are made of acrylic and can be fabricated in two different ways. A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have healed,a flesh-colored acrylic base fits over the gums after they are completely healed. An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted and the tissues are allowed to heal under the denture, immediate dentures offer the benefit of never having to be without your teeth.
