Types of Dentures:
There are usually two types of Dentures which are as follows:
1) Complete Dentures:
After the removal of the teeth these are made to fit in the mouth in place of the missing teeth after about eighth to twelve months after the gum tissue has been healed. These are the ‘Conventional Complete Dentures while the Immediate Complete Dentures can be fixed in the mouth as soon as the teeth are removed. The advantage of immediate dentures is that the patient doesn’t have to wait for the healing procedure. While a disadvantage of immediate dentures is that during the healing the gums change their shape and so they can only be used until the conventional dentures are made.
2) Partial Dentures
These are used when a lot of teeth are removed and a bridge is fixed over them and crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the space. So, a partial denture has two advantages:
- Fills in the missing space
- Protects and keeps other teeth in place.

Dr Simms is very gentle and honestly cares about the well being of his patients. The staff is young but very friendly. I would recommend this dental office to all. You have to overlook the premises though as they are going about a new face-lift to better benefit their patients.
Staff very friendly! Doctor Simms and the rest of the staff make sure you’re comfortable before any procedures are done!
I like it at this dentist office the staff is very friendly and I had fun chatting with the staff there. They are informative when you ask a question, and they work with you meaning rather than give you a date, they ask when do YOU want to come in.
I would like to thank Dr. Simms for giving me the opportunity of working in the dentistry environment, even though my relationship with the practice was cut short due to the immediately leave from Georgia. I just want to say thank you for being a great leader and boss and keep up the good success.
