Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. They are better than the alternative of not having teeth. Depending on each individual case, they may receive full or partial dentures.
Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a complete denture. There are different types of full dentures. In some patients, implants can be used to help retain the dentures. At your initial appointment, a comprehensive exam will be done and we will talk about all available options.
Partial dentures are another option when not all of your teeth need to be removed. A partial denture can replace multiple missing teeth and utilizes any remaining natural teeth for support. Partial dentures are also removable.
