Why Wear a Denture?

Dentures in one form or another have been around for many years. The earliest recorded use of dentures was more then 2000 years ago. Today, dentures are better quality and more comfortable then ever before.

Replacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance. A complete or full denture replaces the natural teeth and procides support for cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat and speak.

A denture is an appliance which is worn to replace lost or missing teeth to enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. A complete or full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. A partial denture fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth and is attatched to your natural teeth with metal clasps for devices called precision attachments.

The base of the denture known as the plate can be made of either acrylic or chrome, the teeth are normally made of acrylic and can be made to match your natural teeth. This is very important when having a partial denture.
