Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics designed to look and function like natural teeth. For years, some form of denture has been used to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, although today’s dentures are much more advanced and easier to care for. Most dentures are composed of replacement teeth attached to plastic bases that take on the appearance of the gums. They are used to compensate for one or more missing teeth, and are available as partials and complete sets of teeth. When possible, Dr. Tuttle prefers dental implants, crowns or bridges to achieve the same goal with a better overall appearance and maintenance.
