A complete denture may be 'Conventional' or 'immediate'. A conventional denture is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4-6 weeks.

Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments need to be made.
Removable Partial Dentures may be any one of these types:
- Traditional denture

How Long do Dentures Last?
Over a period of time, your denture will need to be relined, remade, or rebased due to normal wear. Rebasing means making a new base while keeping the existing denture teeth. Also, as you age, your mouth naturally changes. These changes cause your dentures to loosen, making chewing difficult and irritating your gums. At a minimum, you should see Dr. Robin Patel the best implant dentist in satellite at his dental implant clinic annually for a checkup.
