Dentures are used to replace missing teeth, and are often the most cost effective solution. Full dentures replace all the teeth on the upper, lower or both jaws. Partial dentures are used to fill spaces where teeth are missing. Dentures can be made from acrylic, chrome, or a combination of both materials.
Dentures require a series of appointments to make, and can often take several weeks to complete. Your dentist can provide advice regarding which type of denture is best suited to your needs or discuss alternative option. Regular active maintenance is still required after the dentures have been made and inserted.
