Dentures, also known as false teeth, denture can be either a full denture or a partial denture. A full denture is used when all of the person's teeth are missing and a partial denture is used when only some of the teeth are missing.
Partial Dentures are appliances that are custom made to replace a person's missing teeth and restore the appearance and oral functions that were lost.
As the name suggests, removable partial dentures can be taken out of mouth easily for cleaning.
Partial Dentures can be plastic, flexible or metal dentures. They consist of fake teeth and a gum-colored base which may be attached to a visible or hidden metal frame. The frame can be inserted snugly between your natural teeth. The plastic dentures may have some form of clasp that attaches to your natural teeth. They can be just plastic or metal framed based on your needs.
The surface of dentures may feel different than your natural teeth, and eating and speaking with them may be an adjustment. As you age and your mouth changes in few years, your dentures might need to be remade to function properly.
