What is a Partial?

Partial is used to replace one or more missing teeth found in a mouth. The base material is used to attach to the gum and position with the help of metal clasps.

What is a Full Denture?

Full dentures are used to replace a whole set of missing teeth. They use a supportive base material to anchor to the gums for a secure fit. Denture adhesive helps to allow for an even more stable feel.

Why Should I Replace Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth can lead to several other complications that will require more extensive treatment. Some of these issues are included in the following:

  • Jaw bone density and gum tissue can be slowly diminished without stimulation from the tooth’s root.
  • The surrounding teeth will begin to shift and change the bite and the way the teeth fit.
  • The remaining healthy teeth will take on more pressure which leads to a higher risk of breaks and cracks.
  • Modern dentures and partials can fix each of these issues and leave you with a transformed smile.
