Dentures are not all alike!
Replacing missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health
and appearance. Full dentures replace all of your missing teeth
and provide support for your cheeks and lips. These replacement
teeth dramatically improve your ability to speak and eat.
There are two types of full dentures, conventional dentures (made
and inserted after all remaining teeth are removed and the tissues
have healed) and immediate dentures (inserted immediately after

mouth during various stages of construction to insure that each
