Dentures are a life-like replacement to teeth lost due to gum disease, decay, or injury and can help the patient regain a normal life. When a large group of teeth or whole mouth needs to be replaced at once, dentures are usually what is used. Many of us have memories of an older relative, or friend, with dentures. In the past they have been obviously fake, uncomfortable and difficult to keep in place. In combination with dental implants, today’s dentures allow patients to bite and chew normally and make an excellent replacement.
