A denture is an appliance that is worn to replace lost or missing teeth to enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence.
A complete or full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. When you loose a number of teeth, your face can look 'sunken' and you may appear older than you are. A complete denture not only replaces the natural teeth but also helps to support the cheeks and lips.
A denture is made from hard-wearing material, either acrylic (plastic) or metal, that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give you mouth a natural appearance. Your denture will be made to fit snugly on your gums and you will be able to remove it for cleaning.
A partial denture fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth and is attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.
It is also possible to fit dentures onto dental implants, improving their stability and increasing your confidence.
