Complete dentures replace all of the teeth on either the upper or lower jaw.
Complete dentures are made from prefabricated acrylic and sized to fit the
shape of your jaw and mouth. They mimic the color and appearance of your
natural teeth. The unique impression of your teeth, bite, and the shape of your
jaw shape will be used to create the dentures. Typically, conventional complete
dentures require a one-to-two month wait after the extraction of your teeth, so
that your mouth and gums will have time to heal, permitting a more accurate
fitting. However, if you cannot afford to be without the missing teeth even for a
short time, dentures can be inserted immediately after the extraction.
