Dentures and Partials

Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and tissue. They are used for patients who have lost all their teeth and are made of replacement teeth bonded to natural tissue-colored resin. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain and attach to these teeth via tooth-colored, flexible clasps. Both complete and partial dentures can improve chewing function and speech and support facial muscles to achieve a more natural, youthful appearance.
