Dentures include all the artificial materials prepared to give the chewing and speaking functions back to the patients who lost their teeth for some reason as well as to give them an aesthetic appearance.
Teeth and bone loss occur in general when the periodontal diseases are not treated.
The dental health which is lost in this way is corrected with dentures. The lips, cheek supports, speaking and chewing functions as well as the aesthetic appearance lost in this way are regained. Individuals who had to live with missing or damaged teeth and who have forgotten to smile are supported psychologically in this way. The life quality of the patient is increased with dentures.
