Dentures, a removable replacement for missing teeth, can boost your confidence, help you eat almost all foods without pain or embarrassment, and restore the facial contour around your mouth.
You’ll need either a complete denture or a partial denture, depending on how many of your teeth are missing. A complete denture replaces all of your upper and lower teeth, fitting over your gums and jawbone. A partial denture replaces one or a couple of missing or decayed teeth. It’s made up of a plastic or metal plate with false teeth attached, and uses metal clasps to clip onto your nearby natural teeth.
You might be able to have dental implants as an alternative to dentures, or to serve as anchors, ‘locking’ the denture into position to stop it moving.
