Dentures are a type of prosthetic teeth recommended when you need to replace multiple teeth. Dentures work to restore your oral function and smile, improving your ability to properly speak and eat, supporting your facial volume and enhancing your overall appearance. Dentures are custom made to fit your mouth comfortably and provide an aesthetically pleasing final result.
There are two main types of dentures:
- Complete Dentures — A complete denture replaces all the teeth in your upper or lower dental arch.
- Partial Dentures — A partial denture is used when some healthy teeth remain and includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to your natural teeth to ensure a secure fit.
While dentures are traditionally removable, our dentists may recommend anchoring them in place with implants. We will review all your options with you during your consultation to help you make an informed decision regarding your dentures.
It will take several appointments to complete your dentures and ensure that they fit properly. After you have received your dentures, our dentists will also provide you with instruction on caring for your appliance so that you can keep it in good condition. We will also check your dentures at each of your regular dental visits to ensure that they fit and function properly and determine if any maintenance is needed.
