A complete denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces all of the teeth in an arch, as well as any missing supporting structures (gums and Bone).
The Conventional complete denture is designed for patients who have lost all of their teeth or who need to have any remaining teeth extracted.
The Complete denture is mixed blessing. On the one hand, it allows the dentist to change almost anything you want in your smile. On the other hand after you lose your teeth the normal “ landmarks “ are gone and so is the memory of how the teeth used to look.
What is the Over denture? a type of complete denture that fits over remaining teeth or implants.
The retained and reduced teeth or implants are used to help support the over denture.
Although this is a more expensive treatment option than conventional denture, it provides considerable control over aesthetics a much stronger biting surface and significantly greater retention.
