For someone who has lost some or all of their natural teeth, dentures can be the replacement and improve one’s quality of life. And ultimately, dentures can help improve self-esteem and confidence.
Dentures can be made to look like natural teeth. There may be only a small difference in the way someone looks. Dentures also support the cheeks and lips so the face muscles do not sag.
Complete dentures are replacement teeth that are custom-made to fit into a plastic base. The base is made to closely match the color of a person’s gums. If there are still some natural teeth, they will be removed before the dentures are placed.
Types of Dentures
There are three primary types of dentures: Conventional complete dentures, implant supported complete dentures, and immediate dentures. Ask your dentist which are the right ones for you.
