Removable dentures (partial-complete)

Dentures are removable devices constructed to replace some (partial) or all the teeth (complete).

Partial dentures replace missing teeth and clip onto remaining teeth with metal clasps, which are sometimes visible, or a hidden –with a retention mechanism between the denture and teeth. Dentures are very affordable and the procedure is fast. The aesthetic result is very good, especially in elderly people.

The disadvantage of dentures is the volume and the relative discomfort, particularly in the first period after application.
