Dentures are prosthetic removable devices used to replace missing teeth. They are made from a hard resin and supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth to custom make your dentures. A yearly check-up is recommended to ensure dentures are well cared for and functioning properly.
Complete dentures cover the entire upper or lower jaw and are made from acrylic.
Partial dentures replace only a few missing teeth and are made from acrylic and metal
Implant Supported Dentures are an affordable alternative that offer greater stability and security when eating and talking.
Dentures are best for patients who have good oral hygiene. They may cause “denture breath” and require high maintenance, including brushing thoroughly every day and storing them in a glass of water before bed.
If not cleaned properly each day, dentures can cause gum disease or other infections.
