People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth so they can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. Dentures are made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal.
How does it work?
A complete or full denture is one which replaces all the natural teeth and fit snugly over your gums in either the upper or lower jaw. They will help you to eat comfortably and speak clearly, and will improve your confidence and self-esteem.
A partial denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth and can sometimes be supported by the teeth you have left. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps or precision attachments.
Some things you should know:
>You can eat with the denture

>You should brush your gums and tongue everyday
>You should clean your dentures over a bowl of water
>Dentures last several years
