Dentures are designed to help replace teeth that are either missing or damaged beyond repair. Traditionally, dentures have been removable and made up of a base normally made of acrylic or chrome that sits over the gums, and a set of prosthetic teeth.
Dentures are usually fitted as either a partial or full set. This means that they can be used to replace anywhere from a whole arch, to several teeth at once. In some cases, a denture can also be used to replace a single tooth.
We always recommend replacing missing teeth where it’s appropriate to do so. Missing teeth can lead to a variety of dental health issues in the future, and can also affect the patient’s self-confidence and smile. Dentures can help rectify these various issues as well as helping the patient to speak and eat more easily than with a missing tooth or teeth.
We offer a wide variety of replacement options when it comes to missing teeth and will always help guide you to the choice that is right for you. You may also want to find out more about dental implants.
