Dentures & Partials
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 Partial
A partial denture, commonly referred to as a partial, consists of multiple teeth on a gum colored base. They are designed to be used when many, but not all, of the teeth are missing. A partial is normally secured with clips or clasps, but unlike a bridge, is removable.
What is a Denture
A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Full dentures rest on the remaining ridge of gum and, like partials, are removable.
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 to rely on adhesive, then consider implant-supported dentures. With implant-supported dentures, you won't have to worry about slippage, and your prosthetic will feel stable and secure.
