To replace missing teeth

Dental Prosthetics

Dentures – also known as false teeth – are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth to restore the appearance and oral functions that were lost. Dentures are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.

Conventional dentures are removable. New technologies have made other designs possible, some which are bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.

Complete dentures are made of a plastic base that is colored in order to replicate gum tissue and supports a full set of plastic or porcelain teeth.

Partial dentures can either be made with a plastic base or a metal framework that supports the number of teeth that need to be replaced.
