A denture is a removable prosthesis to replace missing teeth and gums, providing you with a replacement chewing surfaces with new teeth, as well as support to your cheeks and lips. In recent years new technological developments have allowed us to increase your comfort with a better fit and make your smile more beautiful with natural-looking dentures.
The denture consists of a base and artificial teeth, made of resin or metal with resin, and fits over the gums. Full dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth, while partial dentures replace one or a few missing teeth. Dentures restore chewing, speaking, and smiling ability, but require care and may need to be adjusted or replaced over time.
Alternatives include dental implants. The Dental Docs have an in-house denture specialist (board certified prosthodontist) Dr. Andrew Chapokas who can provide the best option.
