What are dentures?
Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. A denture is made up of prosthetic teeth set into a pink, gum-colored base. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or all of your teeth, dentures may be a good solution to restore the appearance, function, and health of your smile.
What are complete dentures?
Also called full dentures, complete dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in a dental arch. The denture sits on the gum tissues, and our dentist may recommend using a denture adhesive for a more stable restoration. Based on which teeth are missing, you may need a complete denture for the lower arch, upper arch, or both arches.
What are partial dentures?
Partial dentures are used to replace multiple teeth when some natural teeth still remain. Your partial denture will be custom made to blend in with your smile’s natural appearance, and it may include a thin framework or clasps for additional stability.
