With full dentures, there is no reason to feel embarrassed about your smile anymore.
If most or all of your teeth are missing, you may wish to consider full or complete dentures as a viable teeth replacement option. Full dentures offer the most practical choice for replacing a full arch of teeth. They are designed to fit within your mouth to help with routine lifestyle activities such as talking and eating.
Whether your teeth have been severely compromised by gum disease or damaged by an accident or bad decay, a complete denture can restore your smile to look natural and healthy – so that no one has to know about your tooth loss problem.
Not only do our modern range of complete dentures offer aesthetically pleasing results at an affordable price, the prosthetic appliance requires only a very straightforward and short treatment. A complete denture can fill the gaps in your smile and support the shape of your face to avoid a sunken (read: old-looking) facial appearance.

Types of Full/Complete Dentures
- Conventional dentures: Treatment involves the removal of all your teeth at least 8 weeks prior to denture fabrication. The tissues need to heal from the extractions before denture placement, to ensure an accurate fit.
- Immediate dentures: These temporary dentures are used during the approximately 8-week healing period, while you wait for your full dentures to be fabricated. This ensures that you are never without your front teeth.
- Over-dentures: If you still have a few remaining natural teeth in good condition or existing implants, you may be recommended over-dentures. Since they depend on your existing teeth or implant-supported teeth for stability and retentive strength, you don’t need to extract your healthy teeth with over-dentures. Although you can choose from an assortment of designs, over-dentures are generally fabricated to “snap” into place in order to hold the plate solidly.

Conventional versus Immediate Dentures
Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about eight to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.
Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer 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 with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.
How Are Dentures Made?
The denture development process takes about three to six weeks and several appointments. Once your dentist or prosthetist determines what type of appliance is best for you, the general steps are to:
- Make a series of impressions of your jaw and take measurements of how your jaws relate to one another and how much space is between them.
- Create models, wax forms, and/or plastic patterns in the exact shape and position of the denture to be made. You will "try in" this model several times and the denture will be assessed for color, shape, and fit before the final denture is cast.
- Cast a final denture
- Adjustments will be made as necessary
