Dentures are a cost-effective solution to replacing missing teeth
Dentures are removable prostheses that replace missing teeth. Made out of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal, dentures help to restore function as well as improve aesthetics.
Flexible dentures are a popular choice today as they are comfortable and do not require unsightly metal hooks.
Dentures require an adaptation process, especially when there are many missing teeth being replaced by dentures. The adaptation process involves learning how to chew and speak with the dentures, increased production of saliva and sore gums.
