Dentures are removable dental appliances that serve as replacements for missing teeth. They are custom-made from acrylic to fit over your gums.
What types of dentures are there?
Guildford Heights Dental Centre offers two denture options for patients with missing teeth.
Full Dentures are used to replace a full row of teeth in either your top or bottom jaw, or both. They can be combined with dental implants for a more secure fit.
Partial Dentures replace only a single or a few missing teeth in a row. Partial dentures are usually made from a combination of metal and acrylic.
How do I know if dentures are the right teeth replacement option for me?
The only way to really know what dental treatment or procedure is right for you is to discuss it with your dentist. Your dentist will review all of your teeth replacement options with you to determine which is the best for your needs.
Your dentist may also recommend dental bridges as an alternative for filling the spaces left by missing teeth.
