Sometimes an accident, poor oral health care or disease can leave a patient with only a few healthy teeth or even none at all. In these cases, dentures can be a viable solution.
There are 2 kinds of dentures:
These kinds of dentures are also called “removable partial denture prostheses” or “partials.” Partial dentures are held in place by a clasp close to natural teeth and can be taken out at night for cleaning.
These kinds of dentures are often referred to as “false teeth.” These are used when all of a patient’s natural teeth are lost. Complete dentures are held in place by suction and can be taken out as desired.
