Complete dentures replace all of the teeth on either the upper or lower jaw. Made from prefabricated acrylic and sized to fit the shape of your jaw and mouth, they mimic the color and appearance of your natural teeth. Dentures are made after making a custom impression of your mouth.
Over time your mouth will change, but your dentures will not. The jaw bones and gums can shrink or recede, and if this happens, you can have your dentures remade or refitted when necessary.
Dentures have come a long way since the early days, and they now look quite natural. They can help with your speech and prevent your facial structure from "collapsing."
Dentures and partials can restore your smile and preserve your facial structure.
Partial dentures are removable devices that replace a few missing teeth, instead of all the teeth on the jaw line. They can be attached on either side by metal clasps or precision attachments. With partials, the supporting teeth must be in good condition, but this is a great option if you are missing only a few teeth.
