Unlike most other prostheses, dentures don't have a separate item form. Instead, they only exist as a condition applied to a pawn. They require no material other than the medicine used in the operation. Simply order the surgical operation on a pawn to install them and the condition will be applied.

Dentures replace the user's entire jaw. Dentures have a part efficiency of 80%. This partially replaces the functionality of a jaw - when coupled with the jaw body part having a Talking importance of 100% and an Eating importance of 90%, it results in restoring 64% Talking and 72% Eating and, or a loss of −36% Talking and −28% Eating when replacing a healthy jaw.
These capacities, in turn, affects the following stats: Social Impact, Negotiation Ability, Conversion Power, Train Animal Chance, Eating Speed, Tame Animal Chance, Trade Price Improvement. The Eating loss results in in a 19% reduction in Eating Speed. The end result of the Talking loss depends on the skill.
- Tame Animal Chance and Train Animal Chance will remain unaffected as the 20% reduction is within the allowed defect of the stat. However, any further loss, such as from pain or sickness, will directly affect both chances.
- Other affected stats typically have a 5% allowed defect and 90% weighting, thus Negotiation Ability, Trade Price Improvement and Social Impact are only reduced by approximately −14%.
Installing dentures results in −19% character quality and thus a 19% reduction in the affected individual's pawn value.
If the operation fails, the part has a chanceto be destroyed.
Short of a healer mech serum, there is no other way to repair a missing or shattered jaw. Thus, dentures should be installed on any colonist with that issue.
Dentures are also useful for Body modders. Outside of Social oriented colonists, dentures only incur a minor Eating penalty, and they can be installed without any research. This is often worth the positive moodlet, going from -4 to +4 if the body modder had no other artificial parts. However, a denture's debuff will be permanent unless a healer mech serum is applied (apply the serum after removing the denture).
