Dentures are removable appliances used to replace missing teeth, they are fabricated using either acrylic, chrome-cobalt
or metal-free chrome to which false teeth are added. They help with speech, and chewing, add support to
your lips and chin as well as improve the appearance of your smile.
There are two types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures depending on the presence or absence of teeth remaining in the mouth. Dentures are kept in place by either using clasps that anchor around neighboring teeth or in the case of full dentures by the dentures’ natural suction to the gums.
A denture fixative or glue is sometimes recommended to help keep the denture in place. It will take a while to get used to new dentures, time and patience are needed.
