Complete dentures are "conventional" or "immediate" dentures. Once the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and ready to get fixed as soon as the damaged teeth are extracted from the mouth.
Partial dentures are artificial replacement teeth that restore a few missing teeth in a person's mouth. A removable partial denture consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-coloured plastic clasps. Partial dentures often took place when there is severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease, tooth extraction, jaw injury or poor dental care.
