Traditional dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth. Full and Partial dentures are named so because they replace all or some of the teeth respectively.
The process starts with an examination of the mouth to determine which teeth will have to be removed and which can remain. Loose and /or un restorable teeth are then extracted. The dentures are fitted to go over the remnant gum tissue and around whatever teeth remain in the mouth, depending on the type of denture required. However, there is an adjustment period after dentures are placed in the mouth, and it can take some getting used to. Although they are never as good as a person’s natural teeth, once accustomed to the dentures, most people are able to function and carry on at a satisfactory level. Often implants can be used to further stabilize the dentures.
