Dentures replace missing teeth, help improve speech cause by missing teeth, improve chewing, and improve facial appearance. There are two types of dentures, complete dentures and removable partial dentures.
For patients missing several teeth, removable partial dentures are recommended. These types of dentures use the original teeth to anchor the removable partial denture in place. There are different types for removable partial dentures and designs vary based on need. Consults your dentist to see what is best for you.
For patients that require all of their teeth be replaced, a set of complete dentures may be needed. If it’s just the top teeth or bottom, or your whole mouth, your dentist may suggest a set of complete dentures.
Your dentist can evaluate your teeth and determine if removable partial dentures or complete dentures are needed or may provide alternatives including dental implants or bridges.
