Replacing your missing or damaged teeth will not only benefit your appearance but your overall health as well. Using state-of-the-art technology and updated materials, dentures can now be custom designed to look more natural and feel more comfortable.
It may take some time to adjust to your dentures. Speaking and eating may feel different at first, but these regular activities will resume normally once you are accustomed to your dentures.
Complete dentures are artificial, removable replacements for the natural teeth of the upper jaw, lower jaw or both.
- Upper dentures are held in place by a vacuum created between your appliance and the upper palate of your mouth.
- Lower dentures are horseshoe-shaped to accommodate the tongue. Due to lack of suction, they are often held in place by implants placed in the jaw for support.
Partial dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth by attaching to your natural teeth via a metal framework.
