What Are Dentures?

Dentures are a prosthetic device that created to replace missing teeth.  When you have lost teeth, dentures help replace these teeth.  A custom made and skillfully fit denture will allow you to eat and speak again with confidence.  Your denture will also restore your smile.

Types of Dentures

Dentures come in two basic varieties – full and partial.  Full dentures are a complete replacement for your teeth.  A full set of artificial teeth, which completely cover your gums, and replace all the teeth on either the upper or lower jaw, or both.   A denture can be a great solution when all teeth are missing.  Partial dentures are used when only some of the teeth are missing.  The replacement teeth are attached by a metal or plastic structure. They attach to surrounding teeth with clips to fill the gaps left by lost teeth.

Dentures can now be made more secure and more comfortable with the assistance of dental implants to secure them in place.  Dental implants can make full and partial dentures much more stable and can reduce the additional load placed on your remaining teeth in a partial denture.
