Dentures (or "plates") are removable replacements for teeth, which require regular maintenance and cleaning. Dentures are often a more cost-effective solution for tooth replacement when other replacements (like bridges or dental implants) are unsuitable. Dentures can also be used to replace a tooth or teeth which are not suitable for root canal treatment, or when the cost of root canal treatment and a crown is prohibitive.
