Dentures are constructed to replace missing teeth. Our dentists at Riverview Dentistry can get you fitted for dentures today!
A denture is a removable dental appliance. It is used to replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and enhance your smile. Dentures are durable, but may have to be remade, repaired or readjusted after a few years due to normal wear to correctly fit in your mouth.
Are dentures only suitable to replace a full set of teeth?
Dentures can be used to replace as few as one, or as many as all of your teeth! Full dentures replace all of your teeth in the top and/or bottom section of your mouth. Full dentures are usually made from acrylic with acrylic or porcelain ‘teeth’. Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth. Partial dentures are usually made from a combination of acrylic and metal.
What are the advantages of dentures?
Dentures are the most cost effective option to replace missing teeth. A partial denture is the most inexpensive and non-invasive option available to fill the spaces of the missing teeth. Other options to fill in gaps caused by missing teeth include bridges and implants. A full denture is a very cost effective option to replace a full arch of missing teeth. The other option to replace a full arch of missing teeth is an implant-retained denture, which allows a denture to lock in to implants.
