A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available: partial dentures and complete dentures. We focus on partial dentures and generally refer out the complete dentures locally.
Partial dentures fill in missing teeth when some natural teeth remain and complete dentures replace all teeth. Partial and complete dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth, so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. In fact, partials and dentures may even improve your smile!
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, with or without metal, partials help restore better functionality to the mouth. Partial dentures are removable and may require adjustments in order to create a proper fit with the gums and mouth.
