If you have lost some or all of your teeth the most commonest method of replacing them is by getting dentures. Depending on the number of teeth left in your mouth you will require partial or complete dentures.
Conventional dentures are dentures which are placed after all the teeth are removed and the gums have had sufficient time to heal. This may range from a period of nine to twelve weeks.
Immediate dentures are dentures which are placed immediately after extraction of their teeth. This is mainly done by people who are in active jobs who cannot remain without their teeth for a such along period.
The procedure for making a partial denture and a complete denture is similar but only differ in a few steps and this is because you have natural teeth reamaining in the case of partial dentures. The making of a complete denture is a highly technical process which is done by a dentist in collaboration with a prosthodontist and dental technician.
Since dentures are personalized devices they may require multiple sittings with a time period of one to two weeks for developing it.
The first two sittings are focussed on getting the perfect impression of your gums
This is followed by a sitting to measure how your jaws align with each other and the space between them.
This is followed by a Try-in sitting which is a wax form of the dentures which will include the acrylic teeth. This will help the dentist how well the denture sits on your gums and whether the size, shape and shade of the teeth are correct.
In the final sitting there may be some further corrections and you will be able to take home the dentures
