Dentures, which are also known as false teeth, are specifically designed as a prosthetic device to replace multiple missing teeth. You may need dentures if you have lost teeth due to severe damage, advanced periodontal disease, trauma, or other factors. While conventional dentures are made to be removable, there are designs available that are created to attach to a dental implant, which holds the dentures in place more securely. This can be especially helpful with a lower denture.
Dentures vs. Implants
Dentures have been used to help people live better for decades. Dentures are simple, yet they deliver numerous benefits; patients who wear dentures are able to eat more comfortably, speak more clearly, and smile more naturally thanks to these prosthetics. While modern dental implants are very popular and helpful, there are many reasons why you may choose dentures when considering whether you would like dentures or implants.
