Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. They are made of acrylic resin and sometimes in combination with various other metals.
Correctly placing dentures takes skill and experience. Our Grand Rapids denture dentist is experienced in making sure your dentures are placed correctly and skilled in ensuring that they fit and function properly. There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed.
Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed.
Just like natural teeth, partial and full dentures need to be properly cared for. Use a gentle cleanser to brush your dentures, always keep them moist when they’re not in use, and be sure to keep your tongue and gums clean as well.
