Total Denture Clinic

Chewing ability to taste food is an essential factor in human lives. Well-functioning dentures are necessary for elderly people who have lost their teeth to recover their pleasure of eating. It is known that periodontal disease is a major cause of losing teeth later in life. To research methods to protect teeth from periodontal disease and to meet ever-greater needs for complete dentures among the elderly, the Complete Denture Clinic has provided high-precision complete dentures as a specific outpatient service. The use of an appropriate denture improves not only chewing ability but also the appearance of the mouth area as well as pronunciation, helping the user recover self-confidence. Thus dentures play an important role in maintaining and improving QOL.
