The loss of one or more teeth can cause significant problems, both functional and aesthetic. When teeth are missing, it can be difficult to eat certain foods, speak clearly, or smile with confidence. Removable dentures can be an effective solution to restore the look and function of your smile.
There are two types of dentures, complete and partial. A full denture replaces all the teeth in an arch, while a partial denture only fills in the spaces where teeth are missing. These are split into subcategories, depending on how they’re held in place. These subcategories are implant-supported dentures, conventional dentures, and temporary dentures.
Removable dentures are held in place by a metal wire and the suction that is created when placed into the mouth, as well as the pressure of the natural bite. However, it is important to note that they will require regular adjustments from your dentist to make sure they fit the way they should.
