The quickest and least invasive way to replace missing teeth is with a removal appliance like a denture or partial. Modern false teeth look natural and function better than those available even just a few years ago. Complete dentures replace all the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw whereas partial dentures replace specific missing teeth. These partials often utilize a metal framework for stability and precise fit. Complete dentures rely on suction created around a patient’s ridge and gums. In an ideal scenario, a small number of implants are placed in order to help retain the denture. These implants act as anchors for the denture to essentially snap onto, providing the patient much better functioning as well as peace of mind.
