Dentures

If you have suffered an accident, or lost multiple teeth due to disease or poor oral health, your dentist may recommend dentures as a treatment option. Dentures are artificial replacements for lost natural teeth and gums. There are 2 types of dentures, a partial denture for patients only missing a few teeth or complete dentures, for patients missing all of their natural teeth. 

Partial Dentures 

Called "partials", partial dentures can be used when just a few teeth are missing or when the nearby teeth are not suitable for holding a bridge restoration. Partials are made with one or more artificial teeth that are held together by clasps that fit onto nearby natural teeth. The wearer is able to take out the partial denture for cleaning and to just remove it at night time. 

Complete Dentures 

Often called "false teeth" or "full dentures", complete dentures are used when there are no more natural teeth remaining. Held in place by suction, complete dentures are easily removable. They may present some general soreness to new users and will take some time to get used too.
