If you have lost multiple teeth, our dentists may recommend dentures to replace them and restore your smile. Dentures are a type of removable oral appliance consisting of prosthetic teeth set into a plastic or acrylic base. They are custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly and restore your ability to chew and speak normally, as well as giving you back a confident smile.
Dentures come in two varieties: partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when you have lost some but not all of your teeth, and they fit between your healthy remaining teeth. Complete dentures are used to replace the full curvature of your mouth, whether that be on the upper or lower portions of your dental arch. Dentures may also be supported by dental implants in some cases.
Please be aware that it will take several appointments to create and fit your dentures properly. After your denture has been created, our dentists and team will provide you with instructions on how to care for your appliance and keep it in good condition. We will check the fit and function of your dentures at your regular appointments to ensure that they are working for you and fit your mouth comfortably. We may recommend denture maintenance or repairs periodically to ensure that your denture stays in good condition as time goes on.
