A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
Although you will never feel exactly the same as one's natural teeth, today's dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.SPEAK WITH A DOCTOR
Two types of dentures are available: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
This depends on the number of teeth missing and on where they are in your mouth.
A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your teeth, or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking.
If you decide to get complete or partial dentures, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss potential alternatives. He or she may recommend that you attempt to save existing teeth through treatments such as root canal therapy or veneers, which can cover damaged teeth. If a tooth can’t be saved, your dentist may recommend using a bridge or dental implants.
If you and your dentist agree that dentures are a better option for your particular case, impressions will be taken of your teeth and gums. It can then take several appointments to create and fit your new dentures. Adjustments are generally required after that as well, to ensure proper function and maximize comfort.
