If you have questions about dentures, then you have come to the right blog. Today, our dentist, Dr. Doris Madrigal, is happy to tell you all about replacing your missing teeth with dentures by providing answers to commonly asked questions.

Q: What types of dentures are available?
A: There are two different types of dentures that can be used to replace missing teeth. Those are complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures replace the entire arch of teeth while partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth in a row.

Q: How do dentures fit in the mouth?
A: Complete dentures secure to the mouth by suctioning to the palate. Partial dentures can secure to the mouth by clasping onto the surrounding teeth in the smile.

Q: Is there a way to make dentures fit securely in the mouth?
A: You can use a denture adhesive to make the dentures fit better. Denture adhesive may be like a denture glue that can keep the appliance from slipping and sliding.
