Full vs. Partial Dentures

Partial and full dentures

If you’re thinking about replacing missing teeth with a full denture or partial, you may be curious about how these dental prosthetics actually work. Both feature natural-looking replacement teeth set in a “gum-like” acrylic base. A partial denture is designed to be used when only some teeth are missing; the replacement teeth are affixed to a metal frame that can hold them in place by clasping to remaining teeth. Full dentures, on the other hand, replace all of the teeth along an arch. You can improve the stability of your full denture with denture adhesives, although they’re designed to be held in place with natural suction between the denture and the jaw.

The Benefits of Replacing Teeth via Dentures

Why should you replace missing teeth with a denture or partial? For one thing, these dental prosthetics can help you avoid the oral health problems that arise from missing teeth. For another, they can help you maintain proper function and a more natural facial shape. Also, dentures are generally the most affordable option for replacing teeth, and some health complications can make other forms of replacement impossible.
