A denture is a removable dental appliance created to fill the spaces left by missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures, when used, are an important part of keeping the teeth and mouth in place 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 their teeth, while partial dentures will only replace some 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
Dentures are made to be strong, durable and long-lasting. On occasion, dentures may need to be remade, repaired or readjusted due to regular wear and tear.
