Full or partial dentures can be a helpful restorative option for people who are missing several or even all of their teeth. Dentures are designed to be worn every day and removed at night. They are designed to sit over the gums and around any existing teeth. However, it is important to note that dentures cannot serve as a replacement for teeth; rather, they are an alternative to the absence of teeth.
Dentures are an alternative to dental bridges and dental implants. Dentures can also be placed over implants and abutments. This is called an over-denture and is an excellent combination treatment alternative with great results.
