Denture - What it is

​A denture is a removable prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Commonly referred to as "false teeth", it is usually made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal.

A partial denture is fitted to replace some missing teeth whilst a complete denture is indicated when all-natural teeth are missing. A good set of dentures helps you to eat, speak, function and often makes the person look better.
