Dentures are false teeth and gums made of acrylic, nylon, or metal that fit securely over the gums to replace missing teeth caused by dental decay, injury, or other difficulties. Your denture dentist will build these artificial teeth and gums in your mouth to replace natural teeth that have been lost or extracted. Dentures are classified into two types: partial dentures and full dentures. Partial dentures are intended to replace one or more teeth, whereas full dentures replace the whole set of natural teeth. Do you want to know if dentures can help you improve your smile? Dr. Ronald Ayzin at Laguna Dental Center has over 5 years of experience with dentures since 2017. We will address your concerns or questions to make the best decision regarding this procedure and whether a partial or full set of false teeth is right for you.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are false teeth and gums made of acrylic, nylon, or metal that fit securely over the gums to replace missing teeth caused by dental decay, injury, or other difficulties. Dentures are designed to provide tightly in the gums, replacing lost teeth and eliminating any challenges caused by gaps.
What are the types of Dentures?
There are two types of dentures: full dentures, partial dentures
- Full Dentures. Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are dentures that cover the entire mouth rather than just a portion of it. Full dentures are removable prostheses used to replace missing teeth in people who have lost all of their teeth.
- Partial Dentures. Removable partial dentures can replace a few lost teeth but not a whole upper or lower set of teeth. Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by periodontitis or other dental diseases, preventing the remaining teeth from being too stressed and producing oral health concerns.
