What are Dentures?
Dentures are a prosthesis composed of artificial teeth that act as a replacement for your missing teeth. This is an option for people who have lost their teeth due to old age, advanced peridontal disease, or through injuries. Removable dentures are the most affordable and versatile type of tooth replacement.
What are the different types of Dentures?
Standard Full Dentures
This type is comprised of a full set of upper and lower teeth. Standard Full Dentures are made of a material that is friendly to the gum tissue in your mouth. Full dentures require regular or routine dental visits as these dentures can cause atrophy to the jawbone due to shrinkage.
Partial Dentures are for replacing a number of teeth. They are usually a single piece fitting and are supported by the remaining teeth and gums. Partial dentures are usually more comfortable and more secure.
Cosmetic Dentures are the most natural looking solution to missing teeth. They require the use of dental implants, which enable the dentures to stay securely in place without moving around.
