Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth
and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
Conventional dentures are removable.
However there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
There are two main categories of dentures, depending on whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch or the maxillary arch.
