Dentures

Dentures are removable appliances that are custom fabricated for the patient and designed to replace missing teeth. The materials used are made of acrylic resins alone or in conjunction with various metals. A partial denture can be used to replace some teeth in cases where the patient has some healthy remaining permanent teeth to serve as anchors. A complete or full denture replaces all teeth. An immediate denture, whether complete or partial, involves placing the appliance the same day the unrestorable, diseased teeth are removed. Full dentures, especially full lower dentures, can be used in combination with dental implants. This combination results in more stability and retention where there has been a significant amount of bone loss due to disease or where the natural retention of dentures has been compromised.
