Removable dentures are a more traditional method of tooth replacement. The benefit of using removable dentures is that they are easy to construct and less preparation of neighbouring teeth is required, as well as no surgery is needed. The drawback is that it takes time to adapt wearing and is less comfortable and secure than dental implants and dental bridges.
Two types of dentures are available – partial or complete. Partial dentures are used when some teeth are missing but other natural teeth remain, whereas complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing.
