Complete dentures have two subtypes: immediate and conventional. Immediate dentures are what dentists prescribe to patients for use while the conventional, or permanent, dentures are being prepared. This is done to prevent the gums and jaws from shrinking—something which happens with the absence of teeth. Once the gums and jaw are healed, conventional (permanent) dentures can be applied. A capable and skilled Concord dentist, such as Dr. Kent Davis, will conduct an accurate and precise measurement of the gap or space that needs to be filled, to come up correctly-fitted dentures. Thanks to technological advancements in dental science, repairing one’s smile is now a cinch.
