Conventional Removable Complete Dentures

Our dentist, Dr. Stulic, loves creating and crafting beautiful functional dentures. He will work with you through a series of appointments, usually five, to get the best result and encourages input from your family for feedback. The before picture to the left is a photo of an actual patient and their poor fitting, unaesthetic, and non-functional dentures. The after picture is a photo of the same patient after receiving their new, proper fitting, beautiful dentures, showing our meticulous dental reconstruction work. You can click on the pictures for a larger view of our dental work. This patient could not have been happier.

Conventional removable complete dentures are an affordable alternative to implant supported complete dentures. Removable complete dentures replace all of the missing teeth in the arch. Complete dentures are either "conventional" or "immediate." When you have no teeth in either or both dental arches, then a complete denture is recommended provided there is enough jawbone left to support the complete denture. If there is little to no bone support left, then an implant supported complete denture is better suited to provide anchorage and stabilize the denture. Immediate dentures are used when a number of teeth need to be extracted and the dentures are made ahead of time so the patient "immediately" receives the dentures the day of the extractions. Immediate dentures usually look great because results are instant, but usually have to be remade or relined as healing takes place and the alveolar bone and gum tissue shrinks.

Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been extracted and the gum tissue has healed and stabilized, usually after a few months or so. Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be placed as soon as the teeth are removed, so you do not have to be without teeth during the healing period. A disadvantage of immediate dentures is that bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. So immediate dentures require more adjustments than conventional dentures to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.
