People lose teeth as they age. One can also lose teeth after having had an unpleasant accident or prematurely if there is a disease in the tooth cavity or the oral cavity. One may have a tendency of losing teeth in the maxillary arch which is the teeth set on the upper jaw or in the mandibular arch which is the set of teeth on the lower jaw. You may have lost one tooth or a couple and the pattern may be erratic, dentures can offer you to have a new set of teeth.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth. They are prosthetic devices that can fit into your oral cavity and make way for a complete or partial new set of false teeth. When you have lost teeth, dentures can return function and ability to your mouth. Not only will this allow you to eat and speak again with confidence, they also restore your smile.
Types of Dentures
Dentures come in two basic varieties – full and partial. Full dentures are a complete replacement for your teeth. A full set of artificial teeth, which completely cover your gums, and fill your mouth. Full dentures are specifically fitted and are held in place by the muscles of the cheeks. They can be a great solution when all teeth are missing. Partial dentures are a section realistic looking artificial teeth. They are attached by a metal or plastic structure. They attach to surrounding teeth with clips to fill the gaps left by lost teeth.
