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.

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.
