Full or Complete Dentures
are used to replace teeth after they have all been lost or removed. The teeth are usually removed due to gum disease
or decay. Dentures
are used to replace missing teeth and can be either conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are usually placed after all of the teeth have been removed and the gums have begun to heal, usually after about 12 weeks. Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been removed. These appliances provided by doctors allow the patient to replace missing teeth during the healing process but will most likely need to be realigned or redesigned after healing is complete, as the gums will shift and change during this time.
Partial dentures are devices that are used when one or more natural teeth remain healthy in the upper or lower jaw. These dentures
are designed to fit around the remaining healthy teeth and can be either removable or fixed. Removable partial dentures can be taken out for cleaning or eating. A fixed partial denture accomplishes the same result as a removable partial denture, except that it is cemented into place using the adjacent teeth for support and is usually called a bridge.

Husband has had upper dentures for several years that never fit him well. He had been told some people's dentures never suction in. He wore so much teeth glue and they were still loose. Teeth in the cup was the first thing he did when he came in everyday. I finally convinced him to let Dr. JayCee look at his teeth. She put in a permanent liner and it worked for him. No teeth glue since. Teeth in the cup is the last thing he does before bed now. Thank you all at Southern Smiles!
