A 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 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 require denture adhesive to hold them in place. Traditionally, they are removable to allow for easy cleaning and maintenance. Once in place, they will dramatically improve a patient’s ability to eat and speak. With the proper care, one can easily last for a decade or more.
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 within your existing teeth. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable. The big advantage of partials is that they can replace both consecutive and nonconsecutive missing teeth at the same time, and typically, the remaining teeth don’t have to be altered at all to make room for the prosthetic.
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 clips or adhesive, then 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.
