When all your teeth are missing, a complete or full denture is used to replace them, whereas if only a few teeth need replacing, a partial denture can be used.
As well as restoring function good dentures can restore and enhance your appearance and your self-esteem by improving your facial contour by counterbalancing the loss of muscle tone that results from tooth loss.
