They are effective at restoring functionality and improving the look of your smile.
Two main types of dentures:
When most people imagine dentures, they are picturing full dentures. They are intended for patients who need to replace an entire arch of teeth. Full dentures are typically composed of a high quality acrylic and include both the gum and the teeth. Full dentures can be held in place by suction, adhesive, or dental implants. Dentures supported by dental implants tend to be the most secure, allowing you to avoid issues like sliding, and falling out.
Partial dentures are for patients who only need a few teeth replaced. They are composed of metal and plastic and are worn similarly to the way a retainer is worn. False teeth are placed in the spaces in between existing teeth. Partial dentures can be removed for cleaning and simply snapped back into place.
