A denture is a removable dental appliance created to replace the spaces for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures, when used, are an important part of keeping the teeth and mouth in frame when one or more teeth are missing.
There are two types of dentures – complete and partial. Complete dentures are for patients who are missing all of their teeth, while partial dentures will only fill the spaces for missing teeth. When missing any teeth, partial dentures play an important role in preventing other teeth from shifting position in the mouth.
Typically, our patients receive dentures for the following reasons:
• Complete loss of all teeth in an arch.
• Partial loss of teeth in an arch.
• Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
• Improving chewing, speech and digestion.
The dentures received are strong and durable. On occasion, dentures may need to be remade, repaired or readjusted due to regular ware and tare. Our dentures are made to last. Unlike most dental offices, we will be able to offer you both complete and partial dentures.
