Dr. Leo Man may recommend complete or partial dentures to replace your missing teeth and give you back a healthy, functional smile. Dentures are removable oral appliances, and are usually recommended when you need to replace multiple teeth. There are two main types of dentures:
- Complete dentures– this type of denture is recommended when you need to replace all the teeth in a dental arch. Complete dentures may be used to replace one or both arches depending on your individual needs.
- Partial dentures– this type of denture is recommended when you have some natural teeth remaining. Partials use a thin framework or clasps to attach to the remaining natural teeth and ensure a secure fit.
While most dentures are created over a period of time after your mouth has healed, some dentures can be created immediately and adjusted as your mouth heals from the extraction of the tooth. Implant-supported dentures are also an option for those who are looking for a more secure solution.
Dentures improve your ability to speak and eat, support your facial contours to give you a healthier look, and give you back a more attractive smile.
