If you are missing multiple teeth in a dental arch, dentures are a tried and true replacement option for restoring the beauty and function of your smile. These removable oral appliances are designed with your specific needs and smile goals in mind, and they come in two varieties: partial dentures and complete dentures.
- Complete dentures are the most well-known type of denture, used to replace an entire dental arch or missing or damaged teeth. Depending on the health of your original teeth, we may recommend replacing one or both dental arches. Complete dentures are typically stabilized with a professional denture adhesive.
- Partial dentures, in contrast, replace multiple, but not all, of the missing teeth in a dental arch. These are used when healthy, natural teeth still remain, and they are typically stabilized through a thin network of clasps attached to these remaining teeth.
If you are missing multiple teeth and are looking for a simple but effective restoration option that allows you to eat and speak properly, our team will likely recommend full or partial dentures. These dentures are custom designed to fit your mouth, and they can improve your natural facial volume as well as your smile.
