Partial Dentures


A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it also prevents other teeth from changing position.

Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be placed in the mouth 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, they often require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process.  A Reline is suggested about 3-6 months following immediate denture placement to help the denture fit better. 

Complete Dentures


Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate."  After a thorough Exam and consultation, Dr. Boyd & Dr. Messerly will discuss which option might best suit your needs. 

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.
