Dentures, also known as ‘false teeth’, are the most common device used to replace missing teeth. Standard dentures are made of a plastic called acrylic but can be made from metal in some cases and also flexible plastic at an added cost. They are designed to fit securely and comfortably in your mouth and are made over a series of appointments for every individual denture. Dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth, multiple teeth or a single tooth.
Dentures are held in the mouth by natural suction or sometimes they can be designed to fit your mouth using clips or brackets when you have natural teeth remaining. Wearing dentures can help you to eat, speak, smile and even laugh with confidence.
