Complete Dentures

Livingstone Denture Clinic provides quality full dentures to our patients. Our Denturist ensure quality and satisfaction by consulting with you about the process in fabricating accurate dentures. We take into account your expectations, esthetics, lifestyle issues and the most recent developments in technology advances. Our Denturist will then take the time to explain and recommend the best and most appropriate solutions. 

Complete dentures are either "conventional" or "immediate." Conventional dentures are placed in the mouth about a month after all the teeth are extracted or you are replacing an existing denture, whereas an immediate denture is placed as soon as the teeth are extracted. Kindly refer to our Immediate Dentures page for further information. 

Complete Dentures a matching set of Full Upper and Full Lower, or only a Full Upper or Full Lower that replace your teeth. There are two types of complete dentures: Standard Dentures and Precision Dentures. Conventional Dentures can be fabricated between 4 to 5 appointments. 

It is important to continue having regular checkups so that a denturist can examine oral tissues for signs of abnormalities. As you age, your mouth will continue to change as the bone under your dentures shrinks or recedes. 

To maintain a proper fit over time, it may be necessary to adjust your dentures or possibly reevaluate them for rebases/realigns or new dentures.  Never attempt to adjust your dentures yourself.  When in doubt, please come in to consult our registered denturists (RD).

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are the solution we provide when the rest of your remaining teeth are due for extractions. Should you wish to avoid being completely without teeth for an extended period after extraction, we can start the procedure to fit you with immediate dentures prior to the extractions.

Our registered denturists (RDs) will make an impression of your existing teeth and gums prior to your surgery. They will then use those impressions in the construction of your new dentures, duplicating your original teeth or even improving their appearance should you desire.

Some guidelines on immediate dentures:

  • In some cases, there is no way of trying on dentures prior to extractions.

  • Please carefully follow post-operative instructions from your surgeon and denturists.

  • Temporary linings are advised to ensure a positive fit.

  • Please schedule regular check-ups to ensure ideal healing and the continued good fit of your dentures.Please schedule regular check-ups to ensure ideal healing and the continued good fit of your dentures.

After your gums have completely healed, a permanent reline or measurements for a new denture is advisable to ensure a comfortable and exact fit. Our RD's have the prerequisite skills and years of experience to provide advice on options that best meets your specific needs.


Conventional dentures can’t be applied to your gums until they’ve healed completely from extractions, which can take 6 to 8 months, depending how you heal. However, with immediate dentures, you can have a upper, lower or complete set of dentures inserted immediately following extractions. To make sure you don’t miss a day without a full smile, we take impressions for your dentures weeks before extractions. By doing this, we can have a beautiful set of immediate dentures ready for you as soon as your extraction is done. After your extractions, the Dentist inserts your Immediate Dentures. The very next day you will come to our clinic and we will provide you with a temporary lining, which will help your gums during the healing period.

  • Replace missing teeth

  • Improve ability to chew more naturally with confidence

  • Aid in the preservation of remaining natural teeth

  • Help prevent or treat problems of the TMJ (the jaw joint)

  • Improve speech and confident smile

  • Replace missing teeth in an economical way

  • In most cases, crowning teeth is not necessary to fit a partial denture

  • Partial dentures are usually made of acrylic, chrome or Val-Plast

  • A partial denture may be expected to last about five years depending upon circumstances.
