What are Dentures?

oldercoupleeatingDentures are a set of artificial teeth used when a patient has lost real teeth. Patients lose their teeth to a variety of reasons, including:

  • severe malnutrition
  • genetic defects
  • poor oral hygiene
  • trauma

Dentures give better chewing abilities and greater aesthetic appeal by providing the illusion of natural teeth.

The Dentures Procedure

  • Removable partial dentures are for patients who are missing some but not all of their teeth.
  • Fixed partial dentures (also known as permanent bridges) are made from crowns that are fitted on the remaining natural teeth as well as synthetic materials that are sculpted to resemble teeth.
  • Complete dentures or full dentures are for patients who are missing all their upper or lower teeth.
