Denture is mobile replacement for missing teeth and tissue that is connected to those teeth. Denture base is made of acrylate (material like plastic) and teeth on the denture are made of ceramic or in contrast composite material. Because of shape and color, denture resembles natural teeth and tissue.
Firstly, full dentures replace all teeth, while partial dentures fill space of missing teeth and also prevent other teeth from moving from their position. Therefore, full dentures can be immediate or on the other hand permanent. In short, immediate denture is complete denture or partial denture that is placed same day when natural teeth are removed. In contrast, permanent denture can be placed 8 to 12 weeks after teeth removal, when tissue is healed. However, period can be longer due to health issues.
