D entures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed or put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient case, they may receive full or partial dentures.
Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing from the mouth and replaced with a full set of dentures.
Partial dentures are another option when not all of the teeth are missing. Partial dentures use the remaining teeth to help secure the missing teeth which are being replaced.
Dentures are made of different types are materials and are crafted to match the shape and the dimensions of the mouth and the missing teeth. The laboratory will use custom molds to fabricated your customized dentures which will fit your jaws and your bite.
Even though dentures are not real teeth, you should care for them as if they were. You should brush them to remove plaque and food particles after each meal. After they have been removed you should place them directly into room temperature water or a denture cleaning solution.
