This is a flesh colored base that fits over your gums. The upper denture covers the roof of your mouth while the lower denture fits around your tongue in the shape of a horseshoe.
An immediate denture is placed immediately after a tooth is extracted. The benefit is never going without teeth but they do have to be adjusted a few months after initial placement.
A partial denture sits on a metal framework that is attached to your other natural teeth and provides an anchor for the denture. This is a removable alternative to bridges.
Dr. Vette will consult with you on the denture options and help you decide which of the three is the best choice for you.
