Complete dentures replace all of the teeth on either the upper or lower jaw. Complete dentures are made from prefabricated acrylic and sized to fit the shape of your jaw and mouth. They mimic the color and appearance of your natural teeth. The unique impression of your teeth, bite, and the shape of your jaw shape will be used to create the dentures. Over time your mouth will change, but your dentures will not. The jaw bones and gum can shrink or recede. You can have your dentures remade or refitted when necessary.
These are removal devices that replace a few missing teeth, instead of all the teeth on the jaw line. They can be attached either by metal clasps or precision attachments. Precision attachments require crowns to put on the remaining abutments teeth that hold the partial denture in place. Regardless, these supporting teeth must be in good health.
