Dentures have enabled millions of people to replace their missing teeth and achieve gorgeous, natural looking smiles. Modern dentures come in a variety of forms and can be used to replace several or all of a person’s teeth.
Partial dentures consist of prosthetic teeth set into gum-colored bases. These custom-made dentures are used for people who have lost several of their teeth. Partial dentures are held securely in place through clasps or hidden devices called precision attachments. By filling the space left by missing teeth, partial dentures add beauty to a person’s smile and help restore strength to the bite.
Full dentures are an excellent option for people who have lost most or all of their teeth. These dentures are molded according to the unique dimensions of a patient’s mouth in order to provide optimal function and an improved appearance. In addition to producing beautiful, natural looking smiles, full dentures reduce speech and bite problems caused by missing teeth. These restorations also add fullness to a “collapsed” mouth by providing support for the cheeks and lips.
