Dentures and partial plates are a great and cost-effective way of replacing missing teeth or replacing teeth that just can’t be saved.
Dentures and partial plates are used to help bring back somebody’s smile when their own teeth are missing. Don’t worry, there’s no need to feel bad about getting dentures, they’re not just for the elderly who have lost some or all their teeth.
Denture treatment usually begins with one more tooth extraction. There is then the option to let your gums heal before your denture s made and fitted, or if you don’t want to be without teeth and immediate denture can fitted.
Dentures offer many benefits including enhancing your smile's appearance and improving your overall health.
