What are dentures?

Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or all of your teeth, our dentist has a solution for your needs. Dentures are created from artificial teeth set into a pink, gum-colored base. This base sits on your gum tissues, and we may also recommend a denture adhesive for improved stability.

What is the difference between complete and partial dentures?

Complete dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in a dental arch. Based on your needs, you may wear a complete denture in the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches. A partial denture, on the other hand, is used when some natural teeth still remain. The partial denture fills in the gaps left by the missing teeth, and it may include clasps or a thin framework that attaches to the neighboring teeth.
