Dentures are another form of tooth replacement. They are a removable appliance and are commonly constructed for patients who have more than a couple of teeth missing in a row, however can be used to replace a single tooth also.

If all teeth are missing in the arch a full denture can be constructed. 

Dentures are durable and usually last a long time with regular maintenance.
