A denture is defined as a set of prosthetic teeth attached to a base that looks like your gums. Thanks to advances in technology, modern dentures are more convenient, comfortable, and effective compared to their traditional counterparts. For years, people who had lost their teeth wore dentures but needed messy adhesives to hold their false teeth in place. Even then, economy dentures can fit poorly or slip or shift.
Dentures can be full or partial. Full dentures are a complete dental arch of replacement teeth. A partial denture can replace multiple teeth, blending with your remaining natural teeth. Unlike a dental bridge, these teeth do not have to be adjacent to one another, though they do need to be on the same dental arch. A partial denture remains in place thanks to a metal frame that attaches to your other natural teeth.
