Dentures are prosthetic devices made for patients who are missing all or some of their natural teeth. These artificial replacements are custom fit for your mouth and are made to look and feel like natural teeth and gums.
In the case of complete dentures the dentist will evaluate the shape of the gumline as well as the shape and support of the lips and face to achieve the best look and fit of the denture. For the most part the denture is held in by suction forces but sometimes an adhesive is required to achieve the best stability possible.
When patients are missing a few teeth but still have many teeth with adequate health and support, a partial denture may be chose to fix the missing tooth spaces. This type of denture actually anchors onto the remaining natural teeth. Your dentist will evaluate which type of denture prosthesis is most appropriate for you.
