What is a Denture?
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth, resembling natural gum tissue and teeth, also known as false teeth. With dentures a new smile can be achieved for people with missing teeth, giving them extended self-confidence.
You can have different kind of dentures, fixed dentures or removable dentures that can be a full- or partial denture, depending on your very own needs.
- Full- or complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing.
- Partial dentures are very useful to prevent other teeth from shifting position, as they only fill in the spaces between two missing teeth and by this, stably keeping them apart.
The treatment may not be appropriate for every patient and it is conditional on the satisfactory assessment being carried out. Dentist must assess the patient, obtain appropriate consent, obtain a medical history and explain all the options before carrying out any work.
