Dentures are removable tooth replacements for those with missing teeth and gums. Full dentures are recommended when the patient is missing all of his or her teeth, and partial dentures are for those who still have some natural teeth remaining.
There are two different kinds of complete dentures:
Partial dentures are replacement teeth for any group of missing teeth in the mouth, while some natural teeth remain. The artificial teeth are attached to gum-colored bases and worn in the mouth to achieve a more natural look. There are a few different types of partial dentures, all of which Dr. Nora Balota will discuss with you depending on your specific needs, goals, and budget. For example, some partial dentures include a metal framework that clips to your remaining teeth, or it may have precision attachments, which are less noticeable.
Once your dentures have been placed, it’s important for you to remember that they may feel a little foreign at first. It can sometimes be difficult for our mouths to adjust to foreign objects! However, the muscles in your cheeks and tongue will learn how to keep your dentures in place and before you know it, your dentures will just be second nature.
