Dentures are removable artificial teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. They are made of acrylic resin or porcelain, and are supported by the gums and surrounding tissue. There are two main types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures.
Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, or both. They are made to fit over the gums and are held in place by suction or a special adhesive. Full dentures are typically recommended for people who have lost all of their natural teeth due to decay, gum disease, or injury.
Partial dentures are used to replace a section of missing teeth. They are made to fit around the remaining natural teeth, and are typically held in place by clasps or other attachments. Partial dentures are typically recommended for people who have lost some, but not all, of their natural teeth.
Dentures can take some time to get used to, and it is common for people to experience some discomfort or difficulty speaking and eating at first. However, most people adjust to dentures over time, and they can help to restore the ability to chew and speak properly.
