People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth. Dentures are made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal.

A ‘complete’ or ‘full’ denture is one which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.

A ‘partial’ denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps or ‘precision attachments’.

A good alternative to dentures is Dental implants which can offer a more secure solution without the need to use adhesives which often don’t provide the security of a fixed solution.
