Full dentures and partial dentures can be used to replace teeth that are missing. Dentures can be made to look and feel like real teeth, and are individually fitted to each patient's mouth. Over dentures are fitted over remaining teeth and are more stable than full dentures. For full dentures, some remaining teeth may need to be extracted. Partial dentures are used for patients who have lost relatively few teeth. They prevent shifting of other teeth and recreate the smile.
Dentures have been used to replace teeth since the days of the building of the Pyramids. Well-made dentures will make you look good, allow you to eat almost all foods without embarrassment, and will restore the facial contour around the mouth. It is worth considering dental implants alongside dentures. Very often any movement of a denture can be prevented by simple placement of a couple of implants to â€œlockâ€ the denture into position. Dentures last for many years, but they and the mouth should be checked once a year. Dentures will need to be replaced after about five years.
Dentures are false teeth. They are typically made from impressions (molds) that are taken of the inside of the mouth and they are made of a type of plastic or porcelain that duplicates the shape, size and function of the teeth. They are a removable appliance to replace your teeth.

A denture is a removable piece of acrylic, (a hard plastic), which can replace missing teeth. Dr. Cummings molds and designs all dentures himself, in order to ensure both an esthetic and functional fit.

Dentures (also known as dental plates), can be defined as a set of artificial teeth, which are used when a patient has lost real teeth on the mandibular arch, the maxillary arch, or both. Patients can become entirely edentulous (without teeth) due to severe malnutrition, genetic defects such as Dentinogenesis imperfecta, ineffective oral hygiene or trauma. Dentures can help give the edentulous patient better masticatory (chewing) abilities, as well as enhance their aesthetic appeal by providing the illusion of having natural teeth, providing support for their lips and cheeks, and correcting the collapsed appearance commonly seen between the nose and the chin.
