When many or all teeth are missing from a top or bottom jaw, Dr. Wei may suggest dentures. A full denture replaces all teeth on a top or bottom jaw, whereas a partial replaces many missing teeth by fitting like a puzzle piece. Modern dentures look like natural teeth and are more comfortable than their predecessors.
The porcelain false teeth in a denture are attached to a gum-colored base. This base can be held in place by denture adhesive, clasps that attach to existing teeth, or dental implants. Dr. Wei will help you determine which type of prosthetic is best for your unique situation.
