What is a denture?
A denture is an affordable and cost effective removable device made of acrylic or metal that can be used to replace multiple teeth or a single tooth. They can even be fabricated in such a way that can be placed immediately after extraction of an infected tooth ensuring you do not need to go a single day without teeth.
A partial denture is made of either acrylic or metal and is used to replace missing teeth between your remaining natural teeth. It is generally more comfortable to have one made out of metal as it is less bulky and has better long-term retention.
A complete denture is made of acrylic and can be used to replace all your missing natural teeth on the top and/or bottom jaws. This allows you to restore your chewing function as well as give you a beautiful smile.
