Dentures & Partials

As removable prosthetics, dentures and partials are used to replace missing teeth to restore the functionality and appearance of your smile. Dentures are used when a patient has lost most or all of their natural teeth in one or both dental arches, while partial dentures are utilized when some natural teeth remain. Dentures are typically made of acrylic or a combination of materials, and they rest on the gums, replacing the missing teeth. Partial dentures, on the other hand, have metal or plastic clasps that attach to the remaining natural teeth, securing the artificial teeth in place.

Are Dentures and Partials Right for Me?

Dentures and partials are a suitable option for individuals who have lost multiple teeth and seek a cost-effective and non-invasive solution for restoring their smile. Individuals who are unable or unwilling to undergo dental implant surgery or other more permanent restorative options may find dentures and partials to be the right choice.

The Treatment Process

After a comprehensive dental examination, impressions of the mouth are taken to create custom-fitted prosthetics. For dentures, any remaining natural teeth are extracted, and the gums are allowed to heal before the dentures are fitted and adjusted. For partials, the artificial teeth are attached to a metal or plastic framework, which is then secured to the remaining natural teeth.

Benefits of Dentures and Partials

Full and partial dentures are:

  • A cosmetic and restorative solution for individuals with missing teeth, restoring the ability to chew and speak with ease.
  • Able to improve facial appearance by supporting the cheeks and lips.
  • Relatively quick to fabricate, making them a convenient option for restoring a complete smile.
