What are Complete Dentures?
Complete dentures are made of a plastic base that is colored in order to replicate gum tissue and supports a full set of plastic or porcelain teeth. The traditional full denture is held in the mouth by forming a seal with the gums. They can also be held in place by attaching to dental implants that are surgically placed in the bone of the jaws. Although adding implants to help maintain the denture adds some cost, it significantly increases comfort and ease of use for patients. Implants retain and support dentures and improve patient satisfaction by a large amount.
