Dentures are removable fixtures that can help replace teeth that have been lost as a result of gum disease, tooth decay, or injury. They can be crafted to fit the entire mouth or just certain sections. Patients have experienced an improved quality of life with dentures that make it easier to eat and speak.
Dentures also serve another important purpose: providing structure to the jaw and mouth muscles. When teeth are lost, facial muscles sag significantly. This kind of restorative dentistry can help restore the appearance and profile of your face.
There are three main types:
- Conventional: This is the full set of teeth that people often associate with
dentures. This type replaces all natural teeth in the mouth.
- Immediate: The removable denture is inserted the same day that the natural teeth are
- Overdenture: This is a removable denture that can help to maintain the structure of
the mouth and rests over and between the remaining natural teeth.
If you have lost your natural teeth, dentures are a great solution and can improve your appearance and overall health.
