Dentures may be fabricated if a person has all their teeth missing and can help patients to restore their smile and also to be able to eat food again. Although the denture teeth are not natural, they can restore function and give lip support to help people talk as well. Some people find that the dentures may not fit well due to the severe ridge resorption after teeth have been missing several years. In these cases dental implants can be used to help the denture stay in place and function by snapping onto the denture for added support. Many people can once again eat the foods they were accustomed to before they lost their teeth and find it easy to talk correctly with the additional stabilization of the denture.
