Dentures have a base, gum-colored. The denture base is made with plastic resin and it fits over the alveolar ridge that holds your teeth. From the base of the dentures are projected prosthetic teeth. These teeth resemble and function like your natural teeth. Dentures exert a suctioning effect against the alveolar ridges. It is this suctioning effect that holds them in place. The upper denture is supported by the large surface area of your palate (the roof of your mouth). This also contributes to its stability.
People who wear dentures for the first time may need some getting used to in terms of eating and talking, as the dentures “fits” into the region formerly occupies by the teeth. Dentures also creates and enhances a youthful appearance through its support to the tissues of the cheeks and the lips, and the facial skeleton.
