Dentures bring back your smile. No matter the reason, if you’ve lost some or all of your teeth, full or partial dentures—removable teeth replacements—restore your chewing ability and also help with speech and facial structure. All these benefits lead to more confidence.
When You Need Dentures
There are several reasons you might need dentures:
- You’re missing some or all of your teeth
- You currently have dentures that need to be replaced
- You’re going to have some teeth removed and want dentures to replace them
Whether you need full or partial dentures depends on how many teeth you’re missing or will be having removed. We’ll consult with you to determine the best plan for your situation.
Different Types of Dentures
When you’re missing all teeth on the top or bottom (or both) of your mouth, you’re a candidate for full dentures. Made of a plastic base and colored to match gum tissue, full dentures support a full set of porcelain or plastic teeth. Full dentures form a seal with your gums to hold them in place.
Partial dentures are for those with several missing teeth that form a gap. Made from plastic or a metal framework supporting the number of teeth you need replaced, partial dentures affix to your mouth with clasps around your natural teeth.
