False teeth. Dental technician makes a set of false teeth or dentures. Dentures consist of 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 who have lost their teeth due to injury, tooth decay or gum infection.
