are a "replacement" option for missing teeth. Dentures come in 2 varieties: partial dentures and full dentures.
The difference between the two lies in how many natural teeth remain.
When will I Need Dentures
When the condition of the teeth has deteriorated so far that they can no longer be repaired
and replacement is the only option.
A complete denture is a removable prosthesis of white plastic teeth
in a pink gum-colored plastic base that rests on the remaining gum ridge once all of the teeth in the arch have been removed.
It is important to note that life with an upper denture, a lower denture, and especially both, is a major lifestyle change when compared to natural teeth. Dentures can help restore your confidence in social situations and even your self-esteem.
There may also be limitations with the food you can eat, but dentures can also help to eat food you can't eat without them.
Reasons For A Full Denture
• All Teeth missing in the same arch
• Restore chewing ability
• Restore a natural looking smile
• Economical alternative to other procedures
An upper full denture will almost always feel better than a lower full denture. In order to dramatically improve the fit of a lower full denture, we frequently suggest using dental implants
as a retentive mechanism. Two dental implants placed in the lower jaw can help anchor the denture and significantly improve comfort. Sometimes, the implants can even be placed in the jaw after a denture has been in use for several years.
