Complete dentures are used to replace missing teeth for people with no remaining teeth. Dentures may also be used for people who have lost several teeth. In this case, the appliance is called a partial denture or an overdenture.
It is very important to replace missing teeth. Not doing so can cause a shift in the remaining teeth, an inability to bite and chew properly, as well as a sagging facial appearance.
Fortunately, today’s dentures are designed to be both comfortable and highly functional, and are very similar in appearance to your natural teeth. Dentures are also a less expensive alternative to dental implants.
Dr. Fong can consult with you personally and help you understand your options for replacing missing teeth. If you do choose dentures, you can proceed with confidence because your care is in the hands of a professional with extensive experience in dentures and other dental restorations.
