When all of your teeth are missing, complete dentures can replace them. Technology has improved in recent years, making them more comfortable and natural looking than ever. If you are interested in receiving a complete set of dentures after extractions, your gums will be healed and ready in eight to 12 weeks. Many patients prefer to get immediate dentures placed the same day their teeth are extracted, therefore never going without teeth. This solution does not require a waiting period, but as the gums and bone heal, a sequence of post op visits will occur to ensure proper fit and comfort.
Removable partial dentures are an excellent option for replacing several missing teeth. A partial denture is designed around your remaining teeth gaining a significant amount of retention and support. We treat patients throughout the Emerson area that want to know if a partial denture is more appropriate than a fixed cosmetic procedure.
