Dentures are a removable replacement of missing teeth. They can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.
They offer many benefits including
- restoring function
- improving aesthetics
- improving the ability to eat
- improving speech
- maintaining face height and stopping the cheeks and face sinking in.
They can be made from plastic (acrylic), or metal and acrylic. Dentures are normally held in place by the patient’s existing teeth. More recently that are being used in combination with implants to offer a more stable option.
