There are two forms of dentures - complete and partial dentures.
Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing in one arch. A complete denture may either be “standard” or
“immediate”. Standard dentures are made after all the teeth in one arch have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. Thus
leaving you without any teeth for approximately 4 to 6 weeks. Immediate dentures are made prior to the extraction of the
remaining teeth, and placed immediately after the teeth are removed, during the same appointment.
Partial denture are used when some natural teeth are still remaining in one arch. They not only fill in the spaces created by
missing teeth, but also prevent other teeth from shifting.

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

What does getting a denture involve?
The process of getting dentures requires several appointments, usually over the span of 3- 4 weeks. During your first appointment we take impressions (molds) to create your custom denture. Several “Try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, we will adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty, however this will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to your new dentures.
What are Implant Supported Dentures?

An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, is not supported by implants, and tends to fit less firmly in the mouth.

An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.
Implant-supported dentures usually are made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. Usually, a regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and doesn't need the extra support offered by implants. However, you can receive an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw.
You can remove an implant-supported denture easily. Some people prefer to have fixed (permanent) crown and bridgework in their mouths that can't be removed. Your dentist will consider your particular needs and preferences when suggesting fixed or removable
How do Implant Supported Denture Work?

There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. In both cases, the denture will be made of an acrylic base that will look like gums. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look like natural teeth are attached to the base. Bar-retained dentures require at least three implants. Ball-retained dentures need at least two.

Bar-retained dentures — A thin metal bar that follows the curve of your jaw is attached to two to five implants that have been placed in your jawbone. Clips or other types of attachments are fitted to the bar, the denture or both. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by the attachments.
Ball-retained dentures (stud-attachment dentures) — Each implant in the jawbone holds a metal attachment that fits into another attachment on the denture. In most cases, the attachments on the implants are ball-shaped ("male" attachments), and they fit into sockets ("female" attachments) on the denture. In some cases, these attachments are reversed, with the denture holding the male attachments and the implants holding the female ones.
