A Way to Replace Your Missing Teeth
Dentures provide a way to replace some or all of your missing teeth in an economical way. There are multiple types of dentures but they all work in a similar way. They have plates that mostly sit on top of your gums to provide a hard surface for you to be able to chew and grind food in areas where you are missing your teeth. They can also hook around your remaining teeth to provide additional stability.
However, because dentures are not fixed in your mouth they can feel limiting or inefficient compared to a natural set of teeth. The shape of your jaw can also change over time causing issues with fit later down the road.
