Dentures or false teeth are constructed to replace missing teeth and are supported by gum tissue. Traditionally, they have been removable, but modern techniques can now provide dentures that are secured in place with dental implants, giving greater stability. They also cover less tissue, allowing for an improved ability to taste compared to older style dentures.
Dentures are custom made to fit your mouth, so they take on the appearance of your natural teeth. Modern Dentures can be made in multiple ways and materials, our Dentists will explain all the possible options.
People lose their natural teeth due to many reasons, such as decay, damage or injury. Lost teeth not only make eating a task but depreciate smile as well. However, replacing lost teeth and restoring smile is not as difficult these days. Thankfully, you have access to dentures or false teeth that can compensate for tooth loss, irrespective of the reason
Dentures are natural looking dental solutions that help enhance the wearer’s appearance and health altogether. As missing teeth cause the facial muscles to droop, people start looking older than they actually are. However, when such people use dentures, they regain their lost smile, youthful appearance and become able to speak and chew food normally
The two types of dentures are – Complete Dentures and Partial Dentures. Complete dentures suit those who desire to replace all the natural teeth in either their upper or lower jaw. On the other hand, partial dentures are used to fill in the space left by lost or missing teeth. Partial dentures are attached to the natural teeth with metal clasps or precision attachments.
