Dentures are removable appliances which are used to replace missing teeth and tissues. These are made of acrylic and metal. They are the artificial teeth which enable normal functioning of human mouth. Dentures are of two types – Complete, replacing all the teeth & Partial, replacing certain missing teeth. For patients who cannot or do not wish to undergo surgical intervention, removable dentures are an alternative for replacing missing teeth. Function wise these  are inferior to fixed teeth.
