Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic (plastic), nylon, or metal. They fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps. Gaps left by missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speech, and teeth on either side of the gap may grow into the space at an angle. Sometimes all the teeth need to be removed and replaced.
Modern dentures are natural-looking and more comfortable than in the past. They do take some time to get used to and won’t ever feel exactly like your real teeth.
Dentures may help prevent problems with eating and speech. If you need complete dentures, they may also improve the appearance of your smile and give you confidence.

The Different Types Of Dentures

Complete Dentures:

These are used when all of the natural teeth are missing. Complete dentures come in two forms: immediate dentures and conventional dentures.
Immediate dentures are placed in the mouth immediately after the remaining teeth are removed, while conventional dentures are fitted into the mouth after the gum tissues have healed, usually several weeks after tooth extraction.

Partial Dentures:

These are used when some natural teeth remain in the mouth. Partial dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored base, often connected by a metal framework.
They are designed to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and can be removable or fixed (secured in the mouth with dental implants or other means).

What's The Treatment Process?

For most patients, the denture process is straightforward. First, we get your mouth impressions. Next is obtaining a bite measurement. After the measure fits the denture to see how it will look, the final step will be the actual insertion of the dentures.
