Denture Treatment At Radiant Smile Dental Clinic In Bhubaneswar
Dentures or false teeth are constructed to replace missing teeth and are supported by gum tissue. Traditionally, they have been removable, but modern techniques can now provide dentures that are secured in place with dental implants, giving greater stability. They also cover less tissue, allowing for an improved ability to taste compared to older style dentures.
Dentures are custom made to fit your mouth, so they take on the appearance of your natural teeth. Getting your great smile back is easy – your clinical dental technician will work with your dentist to create new or replacement dentures.
