Partial and Complete Dentures

Partial and Complete Dentures

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are a removable dental appliance to replace missing teeth. Modern dentures closely resemble natural teeth and can eliminate embarrassment about missing teeth or damaged gums while enhancing your smile. Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years and are typically a less expensive alternative to permanent dental implants. With the look and function of natural teeth, dentures can give you back the ability to eat, drink, and smile with confidence.

Why Dentures Are Right for You

Dentures are either “conventional” or “immediate.” Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, which can take several months. Immediate dentures are made in advance and are immediately placed in the mouth after the teeth are removed at the same visit, preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during healing. But immediate dentures may need adjustment repeatedly during healing as the shape of the gums change over time.

No matter what type you get, dentures can restore lost function and give you back the ability to eat and drink foods you had to previously give up. They restore not only function but confidence, letting you smile with ease. 

However, dentures are not for everyone — their removable design requires daily cleaning and care. Some people would rather have a more permanent solution, such as dental implants. At Appearance Implant, we understand you may be sensitive about missing teeth and we want to give you back that smile. We bring more than 35 years of experience in dealing with nearly every type of dental challenge and will work with you to get the best solution for your mouth and budget.

Partial vs. Full Dentures

Dentures are either partial or full dentures. A partial denture, or bridge, fills in the spaces that occur due to missing teeth and prevent other natural teeth from shifting into those spaces, whereas full or complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, including in situations where remaining teeth have had to be pulled due to decay.
