Maintaining Your Denture
If you only have a few of your natural teeth remaining, your dentist may have already prescribed dentures. A denture is a set of false teeth. If all the teeth are missing from your upper or a lower jaw, a full set of dentures is prescribed. However, if you still have some natural teeth in a palate, a partial denture is used. The teeth of a denture are typically made of acrylic resin and are attached to a metal base.
