Dentures are used to replace missing teeth with false teeth. The teeth are artificial and can be of multiple substances but mainly acrylic as they can be colour matched to your natural tooth colour. One of the benefits of dentures is the fact they can be taken out and put back in, making them easy to clean. An additional benefit is the fact that with modern technology they look more natural and have become more comfortable than ever.
There are two types of dentures: complete and partial, depending on how many teeth are needing to be replaced. Complete dentures are used when all, or almost all, of the teeth are needing to be replaced. Whereas partial dentures are for when one or more teeth are missing.
