Dentures are a removable oral appliance designed to replace missing teeth. Our dentist may recommend dentures if you have lost many or all the teeth in a dental arch, in order to restore your oral health and function as well as your smile.
There are two main types of dentures available:
- Complete Dentures — Complete dentures replace all the teeth in a dental arch. Depending on your individual needs, a complete denture may replace one or both arches.
- Partial Dentures — Partial dentures are recommended when you are missing many teeth but have some natural teeth remaining. This type of denture includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth to give you a more stable and secure fit.
Our dentist may also recommend implant-supported dentures as an option for restoring your smile.
Dentures work to help you eat and speak normally, support the natural volume of your face and give you back a natural-looking smile. Your dentures will be custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly, and our dentist will provide you with instructions on the care and maintenance of your appliance at the time you receive your dentures. Please remember to make and keep your regular dental appointments so that we can ensure your dentures continue to fit and function properly. If your denture requires any repairs, contact our office to make an appointment.
