Full dentures are a complete set of removable teeth, held in place by suction, that are fitted for patients who have none of their natural teeth. The conventional type of full dentures are placed in the mouth sometimes several months after complete tooth removal, once the gum tissue has healed. Full dentures can also be made in advance, and positioned immediately after all the teeth are extracted. However, these dentures are often just a temporary solution to give the wearer some relief until the final set of dentures can be made. Changes to the gums and jawbone that occur during the natural healing process mean that temporary dentures may need frequent adjustment and realigning during this period.
Partial dentures are used by patients who have lost a few teeth , but need to fill in the gaps where teeth have been lost or removed. The teeth are fixed to a gum-coloured base, are easy to use and clean .
Whether full or partial, conventional or immediate, dentures provide significant benefits to the wearer over simply going without. These benefits include:

Do you know anyone with dental implants? You probably do, but unless the person has told you about them, you probably would never guess — because dental implants look just like real teeth. Unlike a traditional denture that sits on the gums, suctioned on by a piece that covers the palate, dental implants are artificial teeth that are permanently held in place by a titanium root that is concealed in your upper or lower jaw. They don’t come out, come loose, or fall out. In fact, over time, you are likely to forget they’re not your real teeth.
Now you have the option of having complete dentures that are implant based there’s more to dental implants than just improving your aesthetics. Your permanent dentures are made just for you and surgically placed implants provide the support required.
Implants – Denture Alternative
If all your upper or lower teeth are missing or need to replaced, then an “Implant Supported Denture”, also known as an “All On 4 Implant” is the better option for you. An All On 4 Implant is a full set of teeth that sit on four posts installed in your mouth. These are permanent dentures that won’t need to be removed, are sturdy and can’t have food particles and other substances find their way underneath. What better way to have dentures without the pastes, soaking and instability. In addition, they support bone health and facial structure, unlike traditional dentures.
All remaining teeth will need to be removed and 4 posts are implanted into either / or both the upper and lower jaw. The posts will need to heal the same amount of time as a single implant would. Once healed then your full set of dentures can be installed attaching permanently to the four posts. Once installed your teeth will be secure and not need to be removed and soaked like traditional dentures.
