Dentures are a removable oral appliance used to replace missing teeth. They are typically used to replace many or all the teeth in a dental arch.
There are several types of dentures available:
- Complete dentures — these replace all the teeth in your upper or lower dental arch.
- Partial dentures — these are used to replace multiple missing teeth when you still have natural teeth remaining.
- Immediate dentures — immediate dentures are used to replace your teeth immediately after extraction. Adjustments may need to be made as your mouth changes and recovers from the extraction procedure.
- Implant-supported dentures — these dentures are anchored in place using dental implants to ensure a highly stable solution for your smile.
Our dentists will provide you with instructions to care for your dentures and keep them in good condition. These instructions include keeping your dentures clean, rinsing your dentures in water, covering your dentures in water when you are not wearing them, not making adjustments to your appliance on your own and regularly inspecting your dentures for any wear or damage.
