When a patient looses some or all of their teeth a denture will restore their appearance and function during speech and eating. A denture may have a metal or plastic base, usually though an upper denture will have a plastic base.

When teeth are to be extracted an immediate denture allows the teeth to be replaced on the same day as they are pulled out. A denture of this type though needs to be replaced after six months as it will become loose as the gums shrink during healing.
