Partial and Complete Dentures

Dentures are artificial, removable replacements for teeth and gums. There are two types of dentures – partial dentures for when some of the patient’s teeth remain, and complete dentures for when all of the patient’s teeth are missing. Dentures are made by taking impressions of the patient’s mouth and then custom fabricating the replacements.  Partial dentures are attached to adjacent teeth, while complete or full dentures are held in place by suction or an adhesive. Both types of dentures can be removed for cleaning or at night.

Replacing missing teeth with dentures can help patients in a variety of ways. Dentures can make it easier for patients to eat and speak, and can improve appearance and self-esteem.
