Dentures are a great way to restore the functions of the teeth and they remarkably improve the patient's aesthetics as well. Dentures are one of the options available in the market for individuals with complete, or partial teeth loss.
These dentures restore all of the teeth of the patients. The complete dentures are delivered between 8-12 weeks after the removal of previous teeth. The dentures are placed on top of the gums that can be removed as required.
As the name suggests, partial dentures are used to replace some missing teeth. These dentures are easy and removable. They are made up of either complete acrylic or cobalt chrome metal with acrylic.
