Dentures are removable false teeth made from either acrylic or metal that replace missing teeth. While your dentist will aim for you to keep as many of your own teeth is possible, even people who maintain a good dental health routine may require dentures at some stage in their life.
Not only can losing teeth cause problems with your speech and eating, it can also have an emotional impact too. Whatever the reasons for tooth loss, dentures can prevent these problems, restore self-confidence, and enhance your appearance by giving extra support to your cheeks and lips.
Dentures are formed by taking an impression from your mouth and are individually made for the best fit. The colour and the shape of the dentures will be matched to look as close to natural teeth as possible.
If you are not able to wear unassisted dentures due to bone loss or an insufficient palate, an option could be implant-assisted dentures.
