Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures are removable false teeth that are designed to replace any missing teeth. Your dentist may recommend a complete full set, or partial dentures. Which dentures he or she recommends depends entirely upon the number of teeth that have been lost. Dental design and fabrication technology have improved to fit well and match your remaining teeth.
Dentures replace natural teeth with an acrylic, gum-shaped device. Dentures restore the function of teeth, but also the overall aesthetics of your mouth.
Am I a Candidate for Dentures?
Your local dentist may suggest dentures as a restorative measure for missing teeth. If you have a medical condition that has contributed to deterioration of the jawbone over time they will probably be recommended. The underlying jawbone may also have receded to the point where bone grafting would be required. Dentures may also be used as a temporary restorative option if you are between extraction and placement of dental implants.
