What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable replacement teeth for any portions missing from the mouth. They are often known as “false teeth.”  There are multiple types of dentures and materials used to make them.  The most common material used for production today is acrylic resin.

Complete dentures – Used when all of the teeth must be replaced. They will either be:

  • Conventional (made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue is beginning to heal)
  • Immediate dentures (made in advance which can be placed as soon as the teeth are extracted)

Partial Dentures – Used when only a few teeth need to be replaced.
