Dentures are a removable substitute for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are different types of dentures which cater for the diversity in the mouth of different individuals. These include acrylic, metal, flexi, partial or complete dentures. It generally takes a couple weeks from start to finish.
Partial, Flexi or Complete Dentures?
Partial dentures are made for patients who have one or more missing teeth. These types of dentures can have metal clasps that stabilize the denture on other natural teeth. A flexi denture is a very small denture that can replace one or two missing teeth in the same area. A complete denture is made for patients who do not have any of their natural teeth in either the upper and/or lower arches.
Acrylic or Metal Dentures?
It is important to choose the right denture for your mouth. There are two main materials used for making dentures. Metal dentures are thinner, more durable and often more comfortable compared to alternative denture options.
