WHAT ARE DENTURES?
Permanent solution for tooth loss
Dentures are removable oral appliances that replace missing teeth in your upper jaw, lower jaw or both.
If an accident, a disease or poor oral health care has left you with only a few healthy teeth or none at all, your dentist or prosthodontist might suggest dentures to replace your missing teeth. There are 2 types of dentures: partial and complete. Your dentist will recommend the best type for you based on your oral health needs. For both types of dentures your dentist or specialist makes a model of your teeth by taking impressions. The models are used to custom-make your dentures.
