What are dentures?
Dentures are removable tooth replacements. Dentures are designed to replace multiple teeth. If you have lost all of the teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both jaws, our dentist may recommend full dentures. Full dentures are comprised of artificial teeth set into a pink, gum-colored base. This base sits on your gums, and we may recommend the use of a denture adhesive to ensure your dentures stay in place.
What are partial dentures?
If you are missing multiple teeth but some natural teeth still remain, Dr. Natalie B. McCarthy may suggest partial dentures. Partial dentures use a thin framework or clasps to anchor to the remaining teeth.
