Dentures are removable dental appliances which act as a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to resemble your natural teeth and provide many functional and esthetic benefits. Dentures can be categorized into 3 types: full/complete dentures, partial dentures or implant-supported dentures. If you are missing all your teeth or need to have all your teeth removed, a complete denture will quickly provide you with a new full set of teeth. If you are missing multiple teeth but still have teeth present, a partial denture may be the ideal treatment option. Partial dentures are also very cost-effective and can gradually transition a patient to full dentures if necessary.
For long-term denture wearers, the jawbone gradually shrinks over an extended period of time and causes the current denture to become loose. A great solution for these individuals is the placement of dental implants to anchor and help secure the denture in place. This is called an implant-supported denture.
