When many or all of the natural teeth are missing, a denture may be the best solution for restoring health and function to the mouth. Dentures are removable appliances that typically come in two forms: complete and partial. Partial dentures are used by those who are only missing some of their natural teeth, while complete dentures are designed for individuals who no longer have any natural teeth remaining.
Both complete and partial dentures can be anchored using dental implants. Implant-retained dentures are more stable, secure, and natural-looking than traditional dentures because the titanium implants are placed into the jawbone, where they eventually fuse together. This creates a secure foundation for your dentures, ensuring that your dentures won’t slip, slide, or fall out when you speak or eat.
