Have you lost many or all of your teeth? If you have, dentures may be a good choice for restoring your smile. Dentures are removable dental appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. Based on your needs, dentures can be used to replace just a few teeth or all of your teeth. There are two main types of dentures in Bowling Green, Kentucky:
• Complete dentures: Also known as full dentures, complete dentures are used to restore your smile when all of the teeth in the full arch have been lost. Depending on which teeth are missing, complete dentures can be worn in the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches.
• Partial dentures: A partial denture is used to replace multiple missing teeth when some of your natural teeth are still left. In most cases, the partial denture uses a thin framework or clasps to attach to the neighboring teeth for stability.
