Dentures are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. There are many causes for tooth loss, including disease or injuries. Since gaps in the mouth will cause teeth to shift and move, it is very important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. Dentures can be made for even one tooth. First, a mold is made to determine the best fit. The dentures are then made from this mold. They are available as both full and partial sets. There are two types of dentures plastic and porcelain. Porcelain is considered more durable. However, plastic dentures eliminate the sound commonly associated with dentures. There are three types of full dentures: standard — for people who have already experienced tooth loss, immediate or temporary dentures made and available the same day the teeth are removed and overdentures those which are designed to be placed on top of existing teeth.
