Missing teeth can make your smile appear as displeasing as ever. But, you need not live with such a smile as dentistry has an ingenious solution to this problem. Dentures are prosthetic teeth that are fabricated to fit in the patient’s mouth. They can be used to restore all or just a few of your missing teeth, as well as restore the functionality and aesthetics of your mouth. They are fabricated from dental-grade ceramic and acrylic to mimic the appearance of the teeth and gums, respectively.
I still have a few teeth intact. Can I get dentures?
Of course. Dentures can be categorized into two distinct types; Full and partial dentures. Full or conventional dentures are suggested to patients who have lost all their teeth. But, if you have a good number of teeth still intact and wish to retain them, you may choose partial dentures. Partial dentures are backed by a metal frame along with the ceramic and acrylic. The denture will have teeth in specific positions, i.e., where your teeth are missing. Provisions will be made for your natural teeth, and when you put the dentures on, the prosthetic teeth will perfectly blend in with your existing teeth.
