WHAT ARE DENTURES?
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
HOW DO DENTURES WORK?
Dentures are custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth. Your dentist will determine which type of dentures is the best fit for you.
WHAT IS A PARTIAL DENTURE?
A partial denture rests on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes crowns are placed on some of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for the denture. Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges.
