Dentures for replacing a full set of teeth are called Complete dentures. To replace teeth in the upper jaw, these dentures include a flesh-coloured acrylic base that covers the gums and the roof of the mouth, allowing an entire set of false teeth to sit firmly. Full dentures for the lower mouth are similar, but the acrylic base is shaped like a horseshoe to avoid covering of tongue.
Flexible Dentures are an alternative to a traditional pair, they provide a solution for patients who can't or don't want to use regular dentures. They cling to the gums and don't require denture adhesive or metal clasps to hold them in place.The most obvious advantage is that they aren't brittle, so they're less likely to shatter if they're dropped.
When just a few teeth are missing, partial dentures fill the gap. Partial dentures can be attached to natural teeth in several ways, the most conventional of which uses metal clasps that grip the natural teeth. Another option the dentist may offer is a partial denture, which adheres with precise attachments that are less noticeable.
Impressive makeovers are possible with Cast Partial dentures. Using secure cast metal clasps that simply slide over your existing teeth, they can fill gaps securely and easily. Cast Partial dentures are created from the most popular denture material in use, carefully handcrafted and cold-poured to the metal castings. Each one is unique and created just for you for the right fit.
If you have lost an entire arch of teeth (top and/or bottom), or are soon to have your remaining teeth removed because they are too unhealthy to save, you may be able to replace them with fixed dentures supported by dental implants.
