False teeth are known as dentures and are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth. A full set of dentures serves to replace a complete set of missing teeth. While partial dentures fill in the spaces created as a result of various missing teeth, and help keep the remaining teeth from shifting out of position.
Given support by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity, dentures are usually made from acrylic resin in use with various other materials. With the benefits of renewed mastication (chewing ability) and aesthetics that lend a flawlessly natural look to teeth, dentures can also improve speech and self-confidence.
Someone who has lost most or all of his/her teeth is a great patient for complete dentures. Partial dentures will be an apt choice for candidates who still have some natural teeth remaining.
