Dentures are a removable solution to missing teeth. They can be made of a variety of materials.
Dentures can also be used to replace one or a few teeth – a Partial Denture, or they can be used to replace the whole arch of missing teeth – a Full Denture.
Once teeth have been removed the bone surrounding will also reduce in time and dentures are able to replace this tissue as well as replacing teeth. Dentures, therefore still have their place and can provide a good aesthetic result.
Flexible dentures and clasps can help with retention so you can have a firm, functional replacement for your missing teeth. Dentures are also used as interim treatments when planning dental implants or bridges.
