Dentures are a common option used to restore teeth. Along with other benefits, many find their cost much more affordable than dental implants, for instance. They also don’t require surgery or an invasive procedure. A removable set can provide you with a functional, great fitting, and natural-looking dental replacement. You may have lots of questions or concerns about getting a partial or full set of prosthetics, and we are glad to address those here and in the office.
Complete Set of Dentures
A full denture is a removable prosthesis that is used to replace a full set on your upper or lower jaw. Our dentist will remove any remaining ones, if any, and will fit the patient for the fixture. Our full or complete set is designed to feel natural and comfortable, require less dietary restrictions as possible, decrease the chance of bone loss in your jaw and mouth, and look great.
Complete dentures are either “conventional” or “immediate”. These are made after the teeth have been removed, and the tissue has started to heal. Conventional types are ready in about eight to twelve weeks after the teeth are removed. The immediate types are made in advance and are positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. The wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
A partial is made from a gum-colored base that matches your gums, and artificial replacements which, depending on where it will be placed, may be connected by a metal frame. It is designed to replace one or more missing ones, keeping the existing ones from moving into the gaps. To learn more about the advantages and some things to consider when deciding, visit our partial dentures page.
This type is used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Partials are beneficial because not only do they fill the space created by the missing teeth, but also prevent neighboring teeth from shifting into position.
Overdentures are detachable partial or full sets of dentures that are put over remaining teeth or implants. They are more durable and long-lasting thanks to the support of the original teeth or dental implants. Not only do they enhance the look of a patient’s teeth, but also lessen the chances of the jawbone becoming smaller.
No matter which type of denture, denture adhesives are needed to ensure that the dentures do not fall off. However, keep in mind that using denture adhesives must be in moderation because excessive usage may result in

How long do you have to wait to get removable dentures after teeth are pulled?
After an extraction, the duration of the healing period usually takes around 6 to 8 weeks. You will have to wait for the gum tissues to completely recover for a better fit of the dentures.
Can I get my teeth pulled and get dental prosthesis on the same day?
Yes, Immediate Dentures are possible. Teeth impressions are usually created at least one month before the extraction. Patients do not need to worry about having missing teeth while healing after teeth removal because dentures are immediately placed on the same day. Nevertheless, necessary relining or readjustments are performed when the gums and jawbone recover.
Do they put you to sleep for false teeth?
Extracting all the remaining teeth before having dentures is required. Thus, local anesthesia or IV sedation is usually conducted before the actual removal so that you’ll be pain-free. You might feel a bit of discomfort or pain during the healing period but it will eventually disappear. Dr. Shiney George will make sure that you're comfortable all throughout the procedure.
