What are dentures?

If you have lost many or all of your teeth, our dentist may recommend dentures to restore your smile’s beauty, function, and health. Dentures are oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. Complete dentures, or full dentures, are the type of dentures most people think of when they imagine dentures. A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. This type of denture can be used to restore the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches.

What is a partial denture?

A partial denture may be the solution your smile needs if you have lost several teeth but still have some remaining natural teeth. The partial denture fills in the space left by the missing teeth and attaches to the natural teeth through the use of thin framework or clasps.
