A person should always be aiming to save as many as natural teeth as possible because they are more efficient at chewing food. They are fixed and provide an individual with a certain confidence to live a good social life
Procedure for getting a complete Denture

The time to heal usually takes about 8-11 weeks. It takes multiple steps and measurements before a denture is fabricated. It may take 5-6 visits before the final denture. The time for complete fabrication is about 10-15 days.
