A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. There are either complete or partial dentures. While complete dentures fill a whole mouth, partial dentures are only used when one or more natural teeth remain intact in either the upper or lower jaw.
Are there alternatives to dentures? Yes. Implants are often used as a replacement to dentures. However, the cost is generally greater although implants do typically more closely resemble the look and feel of real teeth.
