Dental Dentures

Dentures can replace the whole set of teeth in your mouth or a number of lost teeth. They are tailor-made by taking impressions of your mouth that are used to make a set that fits your mouth. It is easy to care for them when cleaning, as they are removable. Removing them during bedtime is also possible if you wish.
