There are a number of reasons why someone may lose teeth during their lifetime. Most tooth extractions are necessary because of periodontal disease or tooth decay. But sometimes teeth will be removed because of defects or deterioration caused by other health problems. And often, teeth are lost through injury.

Not everyone will become entirely edentulous (without teeth) but even the loss of a few teeth can cause problems while also affecting your appearance. If there are multiple missing teeth, there is less support for the cheeks and lips, and this can cause facial muscles to sag.

This deterioration can make eating and speaking more difficult.

Replacing lost teeth with dentures restores the appearance of your smile while also providing the necessary support to keep your entire face healthy.

Dentures will need to be relined or remade as your mouth changes shape over time in the normal wear and tear of life. Gums and bone can shrink or recede, aligning differently. Therefore, it’s important to replace loose or worn dentures. Poorly fitting dentures can cause discomfort, infections and sores. Obviously, loose dentures can also make it harder to eat or speak.

Partial Dentures

As the name suggests, partial dentures are worn when not all of the patient’s teeth are missing and only some need to be replaced.

Complete Dentures

When thinking about false teeth, most of us have an image of a complete set of dentures in our minds.
If a patient is missing all their teeth in both upper (maxillary) and lower (mandibular) arches, they may receive a pair of complete dentures, also known as ‘full’ dentures.
