Dentures are custom-made prosthetic devices that can replace all or partial missing teeth. Dentures are very easy to care and can dramatically improve your self-esteem and confidence. Dentures are made to restore functionality and aesthetics to your smile by making them look as close as your natural teeth.
Types of dentures:
Full or complete dentures are used when all the patients natural teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth are present in the lower or upper jaw.
