Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
There are two main types of dentures: Removable partial and complete. Our dentist will help you choose the type of denture that is best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth so they can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. Dentures are made of fake teeth usually made of resin with either an acrylic base or metal.
Removable Partial Denture – a type of dental prosthesis that fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps or ‘precision attachments’.
Complete or Full Denture – one which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.
