Dentures are removable dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They consist of artificial teeth set in a pink or gum-colored base, which rests on the patient’s gums. Dentures restore the ability to chew and speak properly, improving overall oral function and aesthetics. They can be partial, replacing several missing teeth, or complete, replacing all teeth in the upper or lower arch. Dentures are custom-made to ensure a comfortable fit and natural-looking smile.
