A denture is simply a way to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth through a removable plate or frame that holds the artificial tooth and has been done for centuries.
Etruscans in northern Italy already made partial dentures out of human or other animal teeth fastened together with gold bands in the 7th century BC!
Teeth can be lost in multiple ways:
- Disease (gum disease and others)
- Drug Use
Dentures are created to restore:
- The ability to chew
- For looks and appearance
- To improve speech
- For the patients self esteem
