What are dentures?
Dentures are removable appliances equipped with artificial teeth that can be used to replace a single missing tooth, a row of teeth, or a whole jaw.
The Benefits of Dentures
When the gap left by missing teeth is not filled, surrounding teeth can easily shift out of their correct positions. Supporting jaw bone may also begin to deteriorate if missing teeth are not replaced, resulting in a condition called facial collapse.
Replacing missing teeth with dentures can help to prevent bite issues caused by shifting teeth and significant bone loss leading to facial collapse, as well as restore your ability to eat and speak properly.
Types of Dentures
- Full dentures are designed to replace a full jaw's worth of teeth; either the upper jaw or the lower jaw.
- Partial dentures replace either one missing tooth, or multiple missing teeth in a row.
- Conventional dentures are fitted by your dentist once your gums have healed following your extractions.
- Immediate dentures are made in advance and will be fitted by your dentist right after the teeth are extracted.
