Dentures (or "plates" as they're sometimes called) are used to replace missing teeth (often more than one). They are removable replacements of teeth which require regular maintenance and cleaning. Dentures are mostly used as a more cost-effective solution for teeth replacement when fixed replacements (i.e. bridges or dental implants are not suitable). Dentures can also be used to replace teeth which are either deemed not suitable for root canal treatment or when someone is unable to afford root canal treatment and a crown to save a tooth.
