What are dentures?
Dentures are an affordable, convenient option for replacing multiple missing teeth. A denture is a removable oral appliance made up of prosthetic (artificial) teeth placed into a gum-colored base. A complete denture, which is sometimes called a full denture, is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. Based on your needs, a complete denture can be worn in the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches. The denture is held in by suction, although our dentist may recommend a denture adhesive to improve the stability of your appliance.
What are partial dentures?
A partial denture is used to replace missing teeth when some natural teeth are still left. The partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the neighboring teeth for stability.
Do I need dentures?
