Dentures are removable ways of replacing missing teeth. They can be supported by the gums (plastic) or teeth (metal). They are mainly used when several teeth are to be replaced in one jaw and can provide a very economic treatment compared to other forms of tooth replacement.
Dentures can also be used in conjunction with implant treatment to restore many teeth. All dentures have to be removed regularly for cleaning of the dentures, teeth and gums to prevent tooth decay, gum disease or mouth infection.
Dentures can replace some teeth (partial) or all teeth (full) and help patients to eat, speak, function and improve appearance. Your dentist will be able to advise of the best choice for your treatment.Return to the Treatments page
