are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth. Depending on each individual case, you may receive full or partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a full set of dentures. Partial dentures are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The entire mouth is examined and a determination is made as to which teeth will have to be removed and which will remain. Dentures are fitted to go over or around whatever teeth remain in the mouth, depending on the type. There is an adjustment period after dentures are placed in the mouth, but once accustomed to the dentures, all the normal functionality and appearance return and one just carries on as usual. Often implants can be used to further stabilize the dentures.
