emovable prosthetics, better known as dentures, can give patients the confidence to smile again! Some people worry that replacing a missing tooth or several missing teeth requires surgery which means pain and a long recovery time. However, dentures are a proven dental device that can be used to restore a patient’s smile without the need for any kind of invasive procedure.
