What are dentures?
Dentures are false teeth that are usually made from acrylic (or chrome for partial dentures) and replace missing teeth. They are designed to look like your natural teeth. They can be taken out for cleaning or when you sleep at night.
You can choose either full or partial dentures, depending on how many teeth need to be replaced.
Why would I choose them?
If they are not replaced, missing teeth can change the shape of your face, making you look older than you really are. However, with the support given by your new set of teeth, you will retain a more youthful appearance and be able to enjoy your food and speak with as much ease as when you had your natural teeth. As a result, your confidence may improve and your ability to enjoy the company of others may increase too.
Are dentures for me?
If most or all of your teeth are missing, a full denture may be for you. On the other hand, we may recommend a partial denture for those who still have some natural teeth remaining.
This can be a great option at any age, and there are not the same kinds of limitations with health and bone density that some patients may experience with other solutions such as implants.
