Dentures are plastic teeth and gums moulded to replace missing teeth and gums. They are used to restore function and aesthetic, allowing patients to eat and speak better.
There are two kinds of dentures. Partial Dentures which are used to replace one or more tooth/teeth and Complete Dentures are used to replace a whole arch of missing teeth.
Flexible dentures can be in the form of partial or complete denture; however, the difference between them is that the base of a flexible denture is made using a softer material to ease the insertion and removal of the denture. Chrome base dentures have a hard and stiff frame to give a stronger support for the acrylic resin denture.
Dentures require proper home care maintenance in order to last.
