A complete or full denture is one that replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws. A partial denture fills the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. They can also be used alongside dental implants.
As with other methods of replacing missing teeth dentures provide structure and support to the face and cheeks.
Modern techniques and materials mean that dentures can now be a far better fit, making eating and speaking much easier, and they also look far more natural than in the past.
