What is a denture?
A denture or what is commonly referred to as a “plate” is a removable appliance which is worn over the gums to replace lost or missing teeth.
The base of a denture is made of acrylic (plastic) or chrome metal and the denture teeth are made of white acrylic that can be made to match the colour of your natural teeth. A complete denture (also called full denture) replaces all the missing teeth of either the upper or the lower jaw.
A partial denture fills in the “gaps” created by lost or missing teeth. Provision of a denture is an effective option to replace lost or missing teeth and benefits both in appearance and function of chewing. Please seek us at Warrigal Dental to find out more information about dentures.
