Dentures and Partial Dentures
What is a Partial Denture?
A partial denture can help replace multiple missing teeth throughout your mouth. It consists of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum colored base, and fits with your remaining teeth like a puzzle piece. It is typically held in place using clasps, and can be easily removed for cleaning.
What is a Full Denture?
For a person missing an entire row of teeth, a full denture can give them their smile back. In this case, the denture would sit directly on the gums.
Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials
Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. If you prefer a secure full or partial denture, you should consider implant-supported dentures. In a brief surgery, an implant dentist can secure a few dental implant posts to hold your dentures in place. With implant-supported dentures, you won't have to worry about slippage, and your prosthetic will feel safe and sound.
