A denture is a removable appliance that replaces one, a few or all of your teeth. Dentures can be made from acrylic or metal and are often a very good option to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of reasons why people will have dentures:
- Replace missing teeth
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore smiles in the case of missing front teeth
- Restore facial proportions by filling out our lips and cheeks and also restoring the natural height of our jaws
- Decrease stress caused by extra chewing pressure on the remaining teeth due to tooth loss
