Complete Conventional Denture
This is a traditional denture that most people who are missing all of their teeth find the most affordable. But it does have some drawbacks over new denture types (see below)
It rests on your gums
For the upper denture, the roof of your mouth is covered to achieve retention (this allows your upper denture to resist gravity)
It can be very challenging to achieve retention in the lower denture. Most people find it necessary to use denture glue
A good choice if you smoke or have a medical condition that prevent you from having implants placed
Covering the roof of your mouth might be uncomfortable (it causes some people to gag)
For some patients, the lower denture is prone to move in the mouth, making it difficult to eat
It is a removable prosthesis (Food gets underneath and you must take them off at night)
