Dentures and partial dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. Dentures can be used to replace just a few missing teeth or all of the teeth in the mouth. Full dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain in the mouth. One of the benefits of a partial denture is that it can prevent the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth. Both full and partial dentures can also improve your smile by:
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
- Restoring your ability to chew, speak, and eat as normal
- Improving your facial shape and volume
Dentures are created from artificial teeth and gum tissue that closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth and gum tissue so you can feel confident that your smile looks beautiful and natural.
