What are Dentures?

In general, dentures are a type of artificial teeth that you can put in your mouth and then take out as you need to. Dentures come in either full or partial forms.

Full (complete) dentures are just like they sound. When all of your teeth are missing, or are so decayed that they can’t be saved, full dentures replace them and give you your smile back.

If only some of your teeth are missing or bad off, but you still have some healthy natural teeth remaining, you could benefit from partial dentures.

These dental fixes do more than just help you to look good, though. Our teeth have a formative effect on our overall health. Without them, you will begin to lose jaw density, have nutritional problems, and eventually have trouble speaking.

Dentures support your facial muscles, which prevents the “sunken jaw” look common in many toothless people. You can eat and speak normally, allowing you to have regular dinner conversations and an active social life.
