If you have to have several teeth extracted or you are already missing more than one tooth in the same general area, the best thing you can do is replace them as soon as possible so your oral health is not negatively affected. Dentures are an effective and affordable solution for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Travon Holt is a dentist at Dentistry at Camp Creek in South Atlanta GA. He specializes in restorative and cosmetic dentistry and can help you with your dentures.

Dentures Explained

Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth. They are available in two types: complete or partial. Partial dentures are designed to replace a small section of missing teeth when the surrounding natural teeth are still present. Complete dentures are designed to replace the full upper and lower arches. Dentures are custom-designed to fit your mouth with maximum comfort and functionality.
