Dentures have long been a tooth replacement option, as they are removable teeth designed to replace missing teeth and keep your mouth healthy. Dentures make it easier to speak and eat and improve the overall appearance of your smile. Dentures also help prevent your facial muscles from “sagging”.
There are two categories of dentures, complete dentures and partial dentures.
- Complete dentures are required for patients who have no natural teeth left.
- Partial dentures replace a few missing natural teeth and are attached to remaining healthy natural teeth.
