A complete or full denture is a removable appliance and is recommended when you are missing all your teeth in one or both arches.
A complete denture is made of an acrylic material to resemble the gum tissues and teeth it is replacing.
Several visits are required to complete the construction of this appliance.
The advantage of complete dentures is that they replace your missing teeth and allow you to chew to aid in digestion. They also contribute to the aesthetics of your face and supports your lips. Some disadvantages, like partial dentures, complete dentures often become loose due to continued jaw bone loss and require additional adjustments and relining. In addition, your jaw bone continues to shrink and your facial structure will look less supported over time.
You can now add dental implants to help secure your full or partial denture eliminating the worry of ill fitting dentures and help maintain facial support.
