Replace Missing Teeth for a New Smile with Dentures
If you have multiple teeth missing or all teeth missing from your lower and/or upper jaw, Dr. Schmid may recommend dentures to replace your missing teeth. Modern dentures look like your natural teeth and are comfortable.
How Dentures Work:
A full denture replaces all your teeth on the top or bottom of your jaw. A “partial denture” replaces a few missing teeth and fits like a puzzle piece in your smile. Modern dentures look like natural teeth and are more comfortable than their predecessors. The porcelain “false teeth” in a denture are attached to a gum-colored base which is held in place by denture adhesive, clasps that attach to existing teeth, or dental implants. Dr. Schmid will help you determine which type of prosthetic is best for your situation.
