Dentures are removable false teeth. Partial dentures are used to replace one or a few missing teeth while full dentures are fitted if all of your upper or lower teeth are missing.
Denture technology has improved greatly with time and there are lots of new materials and options available on the market. Conventional dentures are made from either acrylic or metal but modern materials include Valplast® which are flexible dentures made using a pressure-injected nylon base.
Dentures are great at replacing gum shrinkage which prematurely ages the appearance of the mouth following loss of your teeth. Well-made dentures will give you your confidence to smile and chew food again. Dentures don’t just replace missing teeth, they also support the facial muscles and create more youthful appearance in the process.
