Dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for many years. They are removable replacements that are designed to look and function like your natural teeth.
A complete or full denture is one that replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. A partial denture fills the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. They can also be used alongside implants.
