Denture is a prosthesis that helps to replace various number of missing teeth to all the teeth in the mouth. This requires a series of appointment to obtain the measurements of the jaw, the relationship between the two jaws, the biting relationship between all the teeth, the esthetics and arrangement of the “false” teeth to make it look natural. The prosthesis needs regular maintenance just like your car. They have to be checked and ,if necessary, adjusted to fit the ever changing condition in your mouth.
There are two types of dentures:
One has an all plastic/acrylic base, the other has a cast metal base. The selection of which type suits you will depend on multiple factors. A careful assessment of your mouth and jaw is necessary.
