False teeth. Close-up of a set of false teeth or dentures. Dentures have a tough, plastic (acrylic) base on which ceramic or acrylic teeth are mounted. The dentures are individually fitted to the patient's mouth and remain in place by resting on the ridges formed by the gums, and by suction. Dentures are needed in patients whose teeth have fallen out or been removed because of disease.
