Dentures are prosthetic appliances created to replace missing teeth. Dentures are held in or supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues in the mouth. Usually, dentures are removable but some different types depend on bonding or grasping onto other teeth or dental implants. At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre our principle objective as modern dentists is to avoid tooth loss. Gum disease, decay, dental trauma, dental accidents, illness or dental neglect can result in toothaches and tooth loss. If you lose a tooth then other teeth can move unfavourably. Missing teeth can result in poor aesthetics, reduced chewing function, collapsed bite and a lack of confidence when eating, laughing or talking. Dentures are one of the most popular options when faced with missing teeth.
