Full dentures, otherwise referred to as complete dentures consist of both an upper and lower set of artificial teeth that are meant to replace your missing teeth. Full dentures are needed when you're missing all of your teeth and they help restore the functions and aesthetics of your natural teeth. With modern advancements in dentistry and denture technology, full dentures are designed with maximum precision to look and feel just like your real teeth.

What are Full Dentures?

Full Dentures in Kelowna

Full dentures are a type of removable dental prosthetic that are designed to replacing missing teeth. Whether you’re missing your teeth from gum disease, tooth decay, or other reasons, a full denture can help improve your quality of life.

Full dentures are typically made from either porcelain or acrylic and are held together by either a metal or acrylic base. Both lower and upper dentures require all your teeth to be missing and or removed. Once removed, your gums need to heal over before you can regularly wear your dentures. A set of dentures can last anywhere from 5-10 years depending on your oral hygiene and denture care habits.

Different Types of Full Dentures

Conventional, Immediate, & Implant-Supported Dentures

There are three main types of full dentures: conventional, immediate, and implant-supported dentures. Each type of full denture offers its own unique benefits and can be recommended for a variety of different needs and situations.

Conventional Full Dentures: This type of denture is meant to be worn as a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. They are custom made to provide a perfect fit for each wearer.
Immediate Full Dentures: This type of denture is only meant to be a temporary solution after tooth removal until your gums heal and it’s time to wear your conventional full dentures.
Implant-Supported Overdentures: Like conventional dentures, implant-supported dentures are a long-term solution to replace missing teeth but are secured via dental implants which are mounted onto your jawbone. They provide an additional level of support and stability compared to conventional dentures.
