Dentures are replacements for missing teeth or tissue in the mouth. There are two different types, conventional and immediate.
Conventional dentures are made after the six weeks of healing after the procedure. Immediate dentures are made before your teeth are extracted, having them ready to use after the procedure is done. However, these dentures may or may not fit well as time passes by, for the swelling will lessen as time passes by.
When not in use, place your dentures in lukewarm water. Post-care instructions will be given after the procedure, and they will include care for the dentures and your mouth. Dentures are durable and can last a lifetime with great oral hygiene practice and regular dental visits.
