Periodontal disease, injury and tooth decay all can cause loss of your natural teeth. However, we can bring back the smile on your face with dentures to restore your missing teeth. With improved technology and updated materials, dentists can now make them appear more natural and more comfortable for the patient.
A denture is an artificial substitute for some or all of the natural teeth and adjacent tissues. There are two types of dentures: complete and partial.
- Complete dentures cover the patient’s entire jaw.
- Partial dentures, with their metal framework, replace multiple missing teeth.
To know which type is best for you, be sure to ask your doctor.
It may take some time to adjust to your dentures. Speaking and eating may feel different at first, but these regular activities will resume normally once you are accustomed to your dentures.
