Full & Partial Dentures: Reclaim Your Complete Smile

Smiling man in suitA smile just isn't a smile if it's incomplete. Missing teeth cause a host of problems, from difficulty speaking and eating to low self-confidence to jawbone deterioration. Don't give up on your smile. Advances in dental materials and technology have made full and partial dentures more lifelike and comfortable than ever.

What is a Partial Denture?

A partial denture, commonly referred to as simply a partial, consists of multiple teeth on a gum colored base. The teeth are not in a row but rather spread across the base to fit like a puzzle piece with your existing teeth. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.

What is a Full Denture?

A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Dentures can be closed or open palate, and they may require denture adhesive to hold them in place.

Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials

Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. If you prefer a secure full or partial denture and do not want to deal with clips or adhesive, then consider implant-supported dentures. In a brief surgery, an oral surgeon can secure a few dental implant posts to hold your dentures firmly in place. With implant-supported dentures, you won't have to worry about slippage, and your prosthetic will feel safe and sound.
