Dentures are customized "false" or artificial teeth that a patient can wear to replace missing teeth. Dentures can be full dentures or partial dentures. Full dentures are worn when all of your natural teeth are missing and Partials are worn when you still have some remaining teeth or when your teeth are unable to support a dental bridge.
Partials stay in place by using clasps that attach to the remaining teeth on the outsides of the partial. Full dentures stay in place by suction and rely on your gum and bone tissue for support.
Dentures can loosen and become worn out over time. It is a good idea for you to have them regularly adjusted and inspected to ensure they are working properly.
