Dental prosthetics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the artificial replacement of lost teeth. Dentures (also known as 3rd teeth) can be fixed or removable. If fixed, they cannot be removed to be cleaned, because they have been cemented onto the remaining teeth (bridges, crowns or partial crowns) or onto implants which have been surgically positioned into the jawbone. If removable, dentures have to be taken out for their daily cleaning sessions. We work closely with our patients to identify which solution is best, depending on your individual needs.
