A denture is a type of replacement for all-natural teeth lost due to old age or weak gums. It is different from other kinds of prosthesis because it is not permanently attached to the gums or jawbone. This is because dentures are primarily designed to replace a set of missing teeth, all at one time. As the only way to replace a lost tooth is to use some form of anchor, and in case, if multiple teeth on the same row are missing, dentures are the only viable solution. This is why they are fitted in the mouth to make it available for daily activities like speaking and chewing. The two basic options for dentures are complete and partial. A complete set of dentures is worn for all day, as a replacement to perform various mouth activities, just natural teeth, and taken out for cleaning at night before sleeping. The partial denture works in the same way, but it is clipped on to the remaining natural teeth. Both options are very common and come with their unique advantages and disadvantages.
