Replacing your missing teeth with dentures
A denture is an appliance that replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips.
There are different types of dentures including:
- A conventional denture, which is made after all teeth have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have healed. The process includes multiple appointments and can take 4-5 weeks.
- An immediate denture, which is inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted. This means no delay in having replacement teeth.
Dentures can be made to fit dental implants to allow for a more secure fit and increasing chewing ability. Implant dentures are ideal for people who are looking for a more stable solution.
An evaluation with Dr. Lee, Dr. Tu & Dr. Chung can help determine what type of denture is suitable for your needs.
