Dentures are removable replacements for
Complete Dentures vs Immediate Dentures:
Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate." Generally, well-crafted dentures take a few weeks to fabricate and require several visits for impressions and try-ins. Many offices can make 'quickie' dentures but they cannot and do not offer quaity aesthetics or a great fit.
A partial denture is also known as a dental bridge or fixed bridge. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain. A fixed bridge replaces one or more teeth by placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the space and attaching artificial teeth to them. The bridge is cemented into place.
A partial denture fills in the space caused by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position.
A precision partial denture is removable. Often these are more natural-looking appliances.
