A Denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth, surrounding tissues and bone. There are two types of dentures available, Removable Partial Denture and a Complete Denture. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, while complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth. Removable Partial Dentures are used when we are unable to use Bridges or Fixed Partial Dentures. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. In fact, dentures may even improve your smile
This restoration method is used to restore your smile and function if all or most your teeth have been lost. The dentures are custom created to resemble natural teeth. Complete and Partial dentures are removable and may require several adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.
New dentures may feel awkward or loose for the first few weeks until the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place and you are comfortable eating and speaking. Although this may require some practice you will adjust and enjoy the benefits that a full set teeth can provide.
