Our teeth pay a significant role and impact how we live our life. They influence our quality of life, including our appearance, how we speak and eat, as well as our self-esteem and confidence. If we lose a tooth or many teeth, one way of replacing them is through removable dentures (false teeth).
Dentures are a cost-effective replacement option for missing teeth in people of all ages. They are typically made of acrylic resin material, but sometimes they are made of acrylic combined with a slimline framework made of Cobalt Chrome, a lightweight metal. Either material will ensure a design that replicates your natural teeth.
There are typically 3 types of dentures:
- Full denture – complete removable set of false teeth, can be for upper, lower or both jaws
- Partial denture – partial set of removable false teeth that clip on to your existing teeth.
- Implant-retained denture – A full or partial denture that is anchored to an implant.
