If you have damaged or missing teeth, dentures may be recommended. The qualified prosthodontics specialists at Penn Dental Medicine can advise the most appropriate type for your particular case.
- Partial Removable Dentures (or Overdentures)
Partial removable dentures (also known as overdentures) are attached to your remaining healthy teeth using a metal framework. These prosthetic teeth then “fill in the gaps” where teeth have been removed or are missing due to an accident.
- Conventional Full Dentures
Conventional full dentures most closely fit the mental image most patients have of dentures. Before full dentures are installed, remaining teeth are removed and tissues are treated. Following healing, a full set of prosthetic teeth is fitted to your jaw and gums.
- Immediate Full Dentures
Conventional full dentures typically require an extended healing period following tooth removal before dentures can be installed. Immediate full dentures, meanwhile, are immediately inserted and refitted over the course of the following months as the bones of your mouth and jaw heal and reshape.
