Dentures have been around for a long time and are an effective option to replace missing teeth. Because of advancement in dental technology, dentures are very natural looking and blend almost perfectly with your other natural teeth. They can be removed when needed. A patient’s ability to eat and speak is restored because of lost teeth. Dentures give a beautiful smile back to those that have lost teeth.
If dentures are what you may need, Dr. Mark Knight and his staff at Knight Dental Care can help you determine which of the two choices is best for your needs.

- Complete dentures – Many refer to complete dentures as false teeth. This treatment replaces all of the patient’s teeth because of loss or severe damage.
