Dentures are prosthetic devices designed to replace all of your teeth. Dentures improve a patient’s facial appearance and self-esteem. The absence of teeth can lead to a sunken, collapsed appearance to the mouth-area. A denture restores missing teeth and gum. A denture is the simplest, least expensive method to restore a normal youthful appearance when someone has lost all of their teeth.
There two types of dentures: full (complete) and partial dentures.
Partial dentures, which are commonly referred to as “removable bridges” were the traditional method of replacing missing teeth when some teeth are still present. Most patients missing only a few teeth opt for “fixed” partial dentures, also known as “crown and bridge”.
Prosthodontists have the specialty training and experience necessary to make the best possible complete and partial dentures.
