Partial Dentures

Complete Dentures

This restoration method is used to restore smile and mouth function if all teeth have been lost. Complete dentures are custom created and natural looking. They are fit in the patient’s mouth to take the place of the original teeth. Complete dentures are generally removable and may require adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.

Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture is used when one or more natural teeth still remain in the upper or lower jaw. Made of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, partials help restore better functionality to the mouth. Similar to complete dentures, it is possible to have more permanent option cemented into place.
