What Are Dentures?
Dentures are false teeth, which are used to restore your smile if you’ve lost one or more teeth. Common causes of tooth loss include gum disease, extensive tooth decay, and injuries caused by dental trauma, such as a hard hit in a contact sport, a slip, and fall, or a car accident.
With dentures, you can restore your smile and your bite, eat your favorite foods once again, speak clearly, and feel confident about your appearance. Dentures are a fast and affordable way to restore your smile, and are almost always covered by dental insurance, making them a preferred option for many patients who are missing teeth.
The two most common types of dentures are partial dentures and full dentures. Read on to learn more about each type of denture, and see which treatment might be right for you.
