What Are Complete Dentures from Santa Barbara Family Dentistry?
Dentures have a strong base of acrylic resin and acrylic or porcelain teeth. The base is pink to match the color of healthy gum tissue, while the teeth are white.
Complete dentures are secured into place using natural suction. Over time, some of the natural suction may be lost due to bone density loss. When this happens, the patient can use denture adhesive to keep the denture in place. Eventually, the denture will need to be relined for a better fit and sometimes even replaced entirely.
