If you have lost multiple teeth, our dentist may recommend replacing them with dentures. Dentures are a type of removable oral appliance that may be used to replace many or all the teeth in your upper or lower dental arch. Benefits of dentures include:
- Restoring the health, function and appearance of your smile
- Restoring your ability to chew, speak and digest food
- Supporting your facial contours to improve your appearance
There are two main types of dentures — full, or complete, dentures and partial dentures. Our dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your oral health and options with you to determine which type of dentures will best meet your needs
Complete dentures replace all the teeth in a dental arch. You may receive full dentures for the upper or lower dental arch or for both dental arches. If you receive this type of denture, our dentist may recommend using a denture adhesive to improve the stability of your appliance.
Partial dentures are recommended when you have lost multiple teeth but have some healthy teeth remaining. This appliance includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to your remaining natural teeth to ensure that the denture fits properly and remains stable in your mouth.
