Both your health and facial appearance can greatly benefit from the replacement of lost or missing teeth. When a complete or full denture is used to replace natural teeth, support is also provided for the cheek and lips. A person can also appear older without this support because of how facial muscles can sag. The ability to eat and speak properly may also be affected.
A dental denture is something that is worn as a replacement for lost or missing teeth, and aids healthy eating and the ability to smile with confidence again. All the natural teeth of either the lower or upper jaw are replaced when a complete or full denture is put in place. For filling spaces in the teeth a partial denture can be used. This is attached to natural teeth via metal clasps or precision attachments.
An acrylic or metal plate makes up the base of a denture. The teeth will typically be of acrylic and can match natural teeth. For partial dentures this is of major importance.
