Complete dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been extracted or missing for a long time. Immediate dentures are made in advance prior to teeth extraction. They are placed immediately after extractions. As a result, the patient does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. Therefore a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared to conventional dentures is that they require more adjustment to fit properly during the healing process and generally only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.
A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that hold the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. A fixed (permanent) bridge replaces on or more teeth by placing crowns on the teeth on on either side of the space and attaching artificial teeth to them. This “bridge” is then cemented into teeth from changing position. A precision partial denture is removable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach the adjacent crowns. This is a more natural-looking appliance.
