Dentures and partial dentures are prosthetics that can replace all or some of your missing teeth. The allow patients to speak, eat and smile with confidence. Dentures can be designed and fabricated to look like natural teeth and support your face and profile.
Patients need to know dentures are a “good replacement for no teeth but are a poor substitute for teeth”. What do we mean? Your own teeth, if kept healthy, will always be better than dentures and whenever possible the goal should be to save teeth. However, sometimes gum disease, tooth decay, chemical damage or injury make dentures a good option.
