Dentures have been a successful way of replacing missing teeth for a long time and will continue to be used in the future, though they are not as sturdy as a fixed solution such as implants or bridges and must be removed at night when you sleep. Also, food can get stuck around your denture and need regular removal and cleaning.
Removable dentures are usually used when replacing several missing teeth and they are a more cost-effective solution than implants or bridges. They can also be used when Implants or Bridges are not an option.
How do dentures work?
Artificial teeth are fixed to either a denture that has a plastic base or a denture that has a metal framework. The type of denture with a metal framework tends to be more sturdy as it is primarily supported by your remaining natural teeth whilst you are chewing. Whereas the type of denture with a plastic base is primarily supported by the gums, which will compress and move a little whilst you are chewing.
