If you are missing several teeth, dentures may be a good option for restoring your smile. Dentures are custom-made prosthetic teeth that are worn over your gums or dental implants and replace your missing teeth. There are two main types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures are used when you are missing an entire arch of teeth. Full dentures may be worn on the upper jaw, bottom jaw, or both. Partial dentures are used when you are missing several teeth in an arch. Partial dentures can be held in place by attaching to your existing healthy teeth.
Dentures can help restore your ability to speak and eat naturally. The dentures that our talented dentist, Dr. Sumeet Bagai, creates also look natural and realistic and can help give you a beautiful, new smile.
While your dentures may feel awkward or uncomfortable at first, you should adjust to the feel of your dentures after a few weeks or months. After some practice eating and speaking with your new dentures, your muscles will begin to adjust and holding the dentures in place will become second nature.
