dentures-miamiWhenever one or a few teeth are missing there are different treatment options in order of replacing those absent pieces, being dentures one of them. Dentures could be complete or partial depending on the amount of absent teeth, and they can be of acrylic or a combination of acrylic with a metal alloy.

Dental education.

 Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or complete denture). However, there are many different denture designs, some of which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics). There are two main categories of dentures, the distinction being whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch or on the maxillary arch. Dentures can help patients through: mastication, as chewing ability is improved by replacing edentulous areas with denture teeth; aesthetics, because the presence of teeth gives a natural appearance to the face, and wearing a denture to replace missing teeth provides support for the lips and cheeks and corrects the collapsed appearance that results from the loss of teeth; pronunciation, because replacing missing teeth, especially the anterior, enables patients to speak better,  especially when pronouncing words containing sibilants or fricatives; self-esteem, because improved looks and speech boost confidence in the ability to interact socially.
