What Is a Full Denture?
Full dentures contain a complete set of prosthetic teeth on a gum-colored base to mimic a natural smile. They’re often held in place with adhesive, but may be secured with dental implants for maximum stability. If you have lost all of your teeth to decay, disease, or damage, dentures are an ideal way to restore your solid smile and let you eat, laugh, and talk with confidence once again.
What Is a Partial Denture?
Dr. Ramsey may suggest a partial denture, or partial, if you have still have some healthy teeth remaining. Partials fill the gaps left by missing teeth, much like puzzle pieces complete a puzzle. Partials are secured to neighboring teeth with hidden clasps.
Implant Retained Full and Partial Dentures
Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. If you prefer a more secure full or partial denture and do not want clips or adhesive, then consider implant-retained dentures. In a brief surgery, an implant dentist can secure a few dental implant posts to hold your dentures in place. With implant-retained dentures, you won't have to worry about slippage, and your prosthetic will feel safe and comfortable.
