Finding the best dentures depends on several variables, including the type of dentures needed and the location, but the dentist should be an ADA recognized prosthodontist who specializes in tooth replacement, states 1-800-DENTIST. When researching dentists, seek recommendations from family, friends, co-workers, pharmacists and doctors, suggests the American Dental Association.
Dentures are available as either complete or partial units, explains WebMD. Partial dentures, or bridges, are made to fit between missing teeth to eliminate gaps in the mouth. A complete denture set is made to replace all of the teeth in the upper, lower or both sections of the mouth. These units are fitted between eight and 12 weeks after the teeth are extracted.
