Dentures are one of the oldest and most reliable ways to replace missing teeth and fill out your smile. While many people associate dentures with senior citizens, the fact is that dentures can improve the smiles of adults of all ages.
There are essentially two types of dentures: complete and partial. A complete denture can replace an entire row of missing teeth, also called a dental arch. While the dentures are custom made to fit your smile, complete dentures may require denture adhesive to help hold them in place and keep them stable. Partial dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth, but only when some teeth remain. These dentures are often secured by metal clasps that attach to your remaining teeth. Partial dentures are also custom made with your smile in mind.
If you are new to dentures, they will take some getting used to. You may have to learn new ways of biting and chewing your food. You will also likely need to become used to speaking with dentures.
