With an immediate denture, a patient doesn't have to wait for the extraction sites to heal before getting new teeth. Even though an immediate denture means you don't have to go without teeth for a long time, it may need to be relined and adjusted as the tissues heal and change shape. For the best comfort and fit, a traditional denture may be needed in some cases.
An overdenture is a type of full denture that is more stable and secure because it is held in place by special attachments that are attached to the remaining teeth or dental implants.
This type of denture is held in place by a small number of implants in the upper or lower jaw, as the name suggests. These small surgical posts add a significant amount of stability and retention by giving the denture a precise place to connect.

No matter if you have partial or full dentures, you need to go to the dentist regularly for care. In addition to checking the fit and condition of your dentures and making any necessary changes, you’ll also get a full exam to check the health of your remaining teeth and the soft and hard tissues in and around your mouth.
