Essentially, dentures are a removable dental appliance and replacement for teeth that are missing from your mouth and the surround tissue, or gums.

There are two kinds of dentures in Raritan, NJ – partial and complete. Pretty self-explanatory, partial dentures are used to fill gaps in the mouth that are missing a few teeth and complete sets are used to fill an entire mouth of artificial teeth. This prevents shifting of teeth or progressive gum movement or sinus sagging.
