A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. These are two types of dentures available, partial dentures and complete dentures – used to replace all teeth. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth, so there should be no noticeable change to appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve a smile!
Complete Dentures – This method is used to restore smile and mouth function if all teeth have been lost. The dentures are custom created and natural-looking. They are fit in the patient's mouth to take the place of the original teeth. Complete dentures are generally removable and may require adjustments to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.
Partial Denture – A removable partial denture is used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Made of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, partials help restore better functionality to the mouth. Ad with complete dentures, it is possible to have more permanent options cemented into place.
