Dentures are a removable option to replace a single tooth, a few teeth or even a whole mouth full of teeth. Dentures are typically the most affordable treatment option for tooth replacement. The contour of the oral soft tissues and jaw bone can change with time, which will affect the fit of a denture. Ill-fitting dentures can cause trauma and create infections in teeth and gums if bacteria and food are trapped around the palate and natural teeth, not to mention the embarrassment and frustration if the denture is moving around when talking or eating. It is important to be aware that even with dentures, professional check-ups and cleans are important. Professional guidance on correct maintenance and cleaning of dentures will help to maximise the life and comfort of a denture as well as any remaining natural teeth.
