A denture is a removable dental appliance created to replace missing teeth. Dentures are an important part of keeping the teeth and mouth in frame when one or more teeth are missing.
There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are for patients who are missing all of their teeth, while partial dentures will only fill the spaces for missing teeth along an arch. When missing any teeth, partial dentures play an important role in preventing other teeth from shifting their position in the mouth.
Dentures have the following benefits:
- Replace complete loss of all teeth in an arch.
- Replace partial loss of teeth in an arch.
- Enhance smile and facial tissues.
- Improve chewing, speech and digestion.
Dentures will give dental support and functionality to your smile. Please give St. Paul Family Dentistry a call to learn more about what dentures in St. Paul, Minnesota, can do for your dental needs and to schedule your next visit with our dentists, Dr. Opack and Dr. Stanton.
