Dentures are detachable artificial teeth, used to restore the patient’s smile and ability to eat normally. It is a faster and cheaper solution for patients who are not ready to undergo permanent dental implant procedures.
Partial dentures replace only one or a few extracted teeth as opposed to having an entire set. Plastic or metal materials can be used as bases and it uses clasps to attach to the remaining teeth, anchoring the denture. It prevents teeth from further shifting and can help restore aesthetics to areas with extracted teeth.
A full denture is used for patients who have lost all their natural teeth. It is a full arch of artificial teeth that can be removable or placed permanently.
