There are a couple of different kinds of dentures. Dentures may replace some or all of your teeth, depending on what you need.
Dentures that replace only some of your teeth are called partial dentures. They attach to teeth that are still there and the bone and gums around the tooth that is gone. You can also get dental implants and then dentures, which improves the stability of the dentures.
Complete dentures are dentures that replace all of your teeth. They rest on the gum and bone of your mouth. They can also be improved with dental implants.
