Dentures, also called “fake teeth”, are removable replacement teeth and are a great option if you are missing all of your teeth in your mouth. If you have no healthy teeth, a complete denture gives you a brand new replacement set, while a partial denture replaces just some missing teeth. There are different types of dentures for different situations.
A denture can fit in the mouth by being placed as a complete denture, an overdenture, or an implant-supported denture. Specifically, an overdenture an be fitted over any remaining natural teeth you may have left. This can still occur if you had root canal treatment. A complete denture differs from an overdenture.
Once all of your teeth are ultimately removed and your mouth is fully healed, a conventional denture, a 'complete denture' is then placed in the mouth. It is made to match the color of your gums making it look at natural as possible.
