If you've lost some or all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag,making a person look older. You'll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.

There are various types of dentures. Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework. The partial is held in place by clasping the remaining teeth with metal arms or by attachment devices such as o-rings or precision attachments. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patient's mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. The denture stays in place by suction and/or denture adhesive. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. The dentist takes measurement and makes models of the patient's jaws during preliminary visits. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
