Dentures are removable teeth replacements for teeth and gum tissues that are missing or damaged. There are primarily two types of dentures - complete or partial dentures.
Complete or full dentures are restorations that are designed to replace all natural teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. They can fit into your gums and would allow the patient to easily perform all functions of the mouth.
Partial dentures are used to fill the spaces that were left by lost or missing teeth and can be supported by other existing teeth. These dentures can be fastened to the natural teeth by using metal clasps.

If your dentist decides that dentures are the right kind of restoration for you, it would be custom-made by taking a series of impressions and measurements of the jaw. A wax model would be created in the exact framework of the denture. The dentist would place the restoration in the patient's mouth and check for proper fit.
