What Are Dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are typically made of acrylic resin or a combination of acrylic resin and metal.


Dentures can restore the appearance and functionality of the mouth by supporting facial muscles, improve chewing ability, prevent biting the tongue while chewing, and enhance speech. They come in three types: full dentures, which replace all teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, and partial dentures, which replace multiple missing teeth while preserving remaining natural teeth, and Implant-Supported Dentures are attached to dental implants for increased stability and support.


Dentures require regular cleaning and maintenance to ensure proper fit and function.

Maintain Your Smile Into Your Golden Years

Dentures are removable appliances used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Custom-made to fit each individual patient’s mouth, they are available in full or partial forms, depending on how many teeth you’re missing.
Partial dentures are a great option for those missing only a few teeth, who are looking for a more affordable and less invasive solution than dental implants. Immediate, also known as temporary dentures, can be used as a bridge while waiting for your permanent set to be created.

Why choose Dentures?

There are several compelling reasons why someone might choose dentures as their preferred tooth replacement option. Whether it’s due to age-related tooth loss, injury, or other oral health issues, dentures offer a range of benefits that make them a popular choice:

Replacement of Missing Teeth:

Dentures provide a solution for individuals who have lost multiple teeth, helping to restore their ability to chew and speak properly.

Improve Chewing ability

Enjoy your favorite foods with ease, no more struggling with tough textures.


Unlike some dental procedures, such as dental implants or bridges, dentures are non-invasive and do not require surgery or alteration of existing teeth.

Enhance your facial appearance

Dentures can enhance the appearance of the mouth and face by filling in gaps left by missing teeth, providing a more natural-looking smile.


Dentures are generally more cost-effective than other tooth replacement options, making them accessible to a wider range of individuals seeking effective and affordable dental solutions.
