Complete dentures
Complete dentures are meant to replace all of your missing teeth and fill your mouth with beautiful, strong, and stunning replacement teeth. Sometimes, tooth extraction is necessary in order to properly wear this appliance—but only if you have a few natural teeth remaining in your smile. To wear this appliance, all you need to do is place it over your gums and suction it to the roof of your mouth. The denture is removable and it can give you the full, complete smile you’re looking for.

Partial dentures

This appliance is removable and it can fill the gap in your smile and give you the appearance and functionality you’re looking for. To wear the product, you will need to place it into the gap and clasp it to the remaining teeth on both sides. The denture is removable and it can help you eat, talk, and even sing properly.
