Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. They can be a great way of replacing multiple missing teeth and restoring a natural looking smile.
There are 2 types of denture, full and partial. A full denture replaces all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. A partial denture replaces a few teeth in either the lower or upper jaw.
Partial dentures can be attached to the remaining teeth by using precision connections on crowned teeth. These fittings mean that the dentures fit closely and comfortably with good stability. Full dentures can be made to fit over remaining teeth or fixed using dental implants.
The benefits of dentures include:
– Mastication: chewing ability can be dramatically improved.
– Aesthetic: dentures allow for a full set of teeth to be replaced restoring your smile.
– Pronunciation: replacing teeth enables patients to speak more effectively.
– Self Esteem: with a better smile, patients feel better about themselves.
