Dentures and partials are constructed to replace all or some missing teeth. These replacement teeth are fixed to a plastic base that matches the color of your gums supported by the soft and hard tissues of your mouth. In the case of a removable partial denture the plastic base may cover a metal framework. This metal framework attaches to your existing teeth for support. Conventional dentures and partials can be taken out of the mouth for easy cleaning; however there are many different designs. Some designs rely on clipping onto teeth, others bars or anchors supported by dental implants. Dentures improve your chewing ability while providing the visual appearance of having natural teeth.
