A denture is a prosthetic devices made to replace some or all of a patient’s missing teeth. Dentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants, if desired. Using dental implants with dentures usually allows a person greater freedom and stability while eating, speaking, kissing, and smiling!
Dentures can be partial or complete, depending on how many teeth a patient is missing. Some dentures have a metal or wire framework, while others are made completely out of acrylic (a material that is made to look like a patient’s gum tissue). Dentures can be rigid or flexible, and can also be retained by dental implants.
