What is it?
Dentures are divided into two main categories: complete dentures and partial dentures.
- Complete dentures are designed to replace the teeth in an entire arch when all the teeth are missing.
- Partial dentures are used when there are still teeth present in the arch.
Complete dentures are constructed using an acrylic base to imitate gum tissue, along with replacement teeth made of acrylic or porcelain. The denture base is made to closely fit the contours of the existing arch to ensure the denture is stable during normal oral functions such as eating, speaking, or swallowing.
Partial dentures are made using a metal framework combined with newly constructed teeth attached in the areas where the teeth are missing. The metal framework also has clasps or arms that extend out and fit around some of the existing teeth, to keep the partial denture stable during normal oral functions.
Why might you need it?
Are you struggling with daily oral functions – like chewing and talking – due to lost teeth? Have you lost all, or a substantial number of your teeth?
Complete and partial dentures offer a functional, and these days – thanks to modern advancements in dentistry and dentures – almost indiscernible replacement when teeth have been lost.
