What are Dentures?
Dentures are designed with artificial teeth and gums to fit snuggly in your mouth and restore both the function and appearance of a mouth with missing teeth. They are created by your dentist to be the perfect fit. While many think of dentures as a whole set of teeth, they can actually be designed to replace all your teeth, just the top or bottom, or replace only a few. It is for this reason that dentures are often referred to as full or partial.
They may take a little getting used to, but most people who transition to dentures (fully or partially) soon understand just how impactful they can be.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dentures?
A good candidate for dentures will be someone who is missing some or all of their teeth, but still has good jaw structure and gum tissue. Full dentures are fitting for those missing all their teeth, a significant amount, or who have a few remaining teeth that need to be extracted. Partial dentures are great for those missing only some of their teeth. If you are only missing one or two, you may be a better candidate for a dental bridge.
