Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
When you are missing teeth, one of the options you have is to get a denture created for you. Full dentures are meant to be a complete replacement to natural teeth, meaning there are no natural teeth remaining.
If you have any natural teeth remaining, a partial denture can be made instead. The partial denture conforms to the unique shape of your mouth and teeth, creating a stable, natural-looking smile.
