Dentures and partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth. They are artificial substitute for some or all of the natural teeth and adjacent tissues. In the past, the loss of teeth signaled a decline in health that could rarely be reversed. After all, it is important to all humans to eat and, therefore, to have a means of chewing their food. In many cases, dentures or partial dentures are an option that will enable patients to eat, speak, smile, and live a more normal and active life!
