Removable Dentures

Full Dentures

When a person has had all of their teeth removed we must make complete dentures for the person to wear. Dentures are an acceptable solution, but no match for our real teeth! Hence, we always try to save natural teeth. When the teeth are removed we are left with a ridge of bone on the upper and lower parts of our mouth on which we can put false teeth. The lower denture always takes a little more work for most patients to get used to for two reasons: lack of height of bone and presence of the tongue. The tongue increases in size in an edentulous mouth and it resists any change in the mouth. In the upper ridge however there is no such interference.
