Dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. If an accident, a disease, or poor oral health care has left you with only a few healthy teeth or none at all, your dentist might suggest dentures to replace your missing teeth. There are 2 types of dentures: partial and complete. For both types of dentures, your dentist or specialist makes a model of your teeth by taking impressions. The models are used to custom-make your dentures.
Conventional complete dentures are removable and rest on the gums. They are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue begins to heal.
Partial dentures commonly consist of replacement teeth that are attached to a gum-colored base and are usually used when one or more natural teeth remain in place.
For both complete and partial dentures, multiple options are available, including Provisional Flipper Dentures, Acrylic Dentures, and Cast Partial Dentures.
