Dentures are removeable appliances worn in the mouth to replace missing teeth. Complete dentures relace all missing teeth and gum tissue, and restore lip, cheek and facial support. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain in the mouth, replacing several teeth with one appliance.
Cosmetic dentures are dentures that don't look like traditional dentures. Made with modern materials, they are crafted to look much more like natural teeth than older plastic dentures. In the case of complete dentures, implants can be placed that allow the dentures to snap into place when inserted into the mouth. This allows much better fit and retention than simply placing dentures in the mouth or using dental adhesives to hold them in place.
