What are dentures?
Dentures are dental appliances that replace your missing teeth. There are two types of dentures: complete and partial dentures. The base is pink to represent the gums and strong false teeth are secured into that base. The complete dentures replace all of your teeth and suction to the roof of the mouth while the partial dentures replace a few missing teeth in a row and clasp to the remaining natural teeth.
What can dentures do for me?
Dentures can replace your missing teeth; give you a complete smile; help you eat, talk, and smile properly; maintain the shape of your face; add force to your bite; and boost your self-esteem.
Do dentures feel natural?
When you first start to wear the dentures, they will not feel very natural. In fact, it will take some time to get used to them. This is to be expected. However, if you practice saying difficult words and chew regularly, you can get used to your dentures sooner.
