Full & Partial Dentures Can Restore Your Smile
If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth, full and partial dentures can be a great way to restore your smile, improve your speaking clarity and chewing function, and boost your nutritional intake. And perhaps most importantly, they can give you back your confidence!
What’s the difference between full and partial dentures?
Full dentures are used when a patient is missing all their teeth. They are set in a pink, gum-like base and are made to fit snuggly over the gums, recreating the look and function of natural teeth. Partial dentures, on the other hand, are used when some natural teeth remain. They fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and are often set in a metal framework that attaches to a patient’s surrounding natural teeth.
Both types of dentures are custom-made and match the color and size of a patient’s natural teeth. Patients who choose to utilize these tooth-replacement options should keep in mind that the denture process usually takes several weeks and may require multiple visits to complete.
What type of care do dentures require?
Caring for dentures is relatively simple. Just like natural teeth, dentures need to be brushed daily to remove food, plaque, and bacteria. They should also be rinsed after eating, and regular checkups with our team are important for denture wearers to not only monitor their oral health, but to ensure that their denture(s) continues to fit comfortably and securely for years to come.
