Dentures are a substitute for missing teeth, and can be removed and placed back in the mouth at any time.
The are two main types of Dentures:
Full, or complete, dentures are used as a substitution for teeth that are all absent or have been taken out of the mouth. Decaying of teeth or gum disease are the primary contributors to the loss or removal of teeth. Within Full Dentures, two types methods of applying full Dentures exist. Standard dentures are added to the mouth once all of the teeth have been removed and gum healing has taken place. Instant dentures are put in the mouth as soon as the teeth have been removed. These dentures placed in the mouth immediately after the loss of teeth require realignment after healing has taken place, due to the shifting of the gums.
Partial Dentures are used to fit around the healthy teeth, and can either be taken out at the patient’s leisure, or can be made permanent. These dentures are designed for removal and can be taken out for cleaning, sleeping, or when the patient eats. Dentures that are permanent are bonded to the gum via cement, with the healthy teeth used as support. This support is referred to as a bridge, and are meant to bridge the gap between one or multiple missing teeth.

Dr. Hussain and her team at Smile at Telfair were awesome. Went in with some tooth pain and walked out feeling good. Definitely will be returning to finish the remainder of my dental work. Thank you Smiles at Telfair.
Right from the beginning when I walked through the door, every fear that I ever thought I would have coming back to the dentist was dissipated by Dr. Insiya and her staff. They took wonderful care of all my fears. They explained every little thing that I would be going through. Clean office and great staff!
This team is a good group of people/ professionals. The staff is always very informative and we always end up having a good laugh. This is the type of relationship I expect from a neighborhood Dentist. I had brought my Mother who doesn't speak English. The Doctor was fluent in my Mother's language and it brought such comfort to her. And it was very comforting to me as well. Thank You Smiles at Telfair.
