A denture is a prosthetic that replaces missing teeth and gums and supports the cheeks and remaining mouth tissue. Dentures are removable, very natural looking, and with technological advances, are very comfortable to wear.
There are two types of dentures available, a complete, which is needed when the patient no longer has any teeth in the mouth and a partial, for when there only few missing teeth. It's important to keep in mind patients of any age may require dentures. Your dentist will evaluate your condition and customize a new set of teeth just for you.
