What is a Denture?
A denture is a removable appliance, typically made of acrylic that is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. Dentures stay in place through a combination of suction and a snug fit, and sometimes a dental adhesive is also helpful. There is a learning curve when you first begin to talk and eat with your new denture, however you’ll appreciate how they immediately restore your smile and your confidence.
What is a Partial?
A partial denture, or partial is also a removable appliance that is designed to replace multiple missing teeth for patients who still retain a most of their natural teeth. Like a puzzle, a partial will fill in the gaps with prosthetic teeth, which will naturally complement your smile. Partials stay in place with metal clasps, which anchor to your existing teeth.
What is an Implant Supported Denture?
Modern dentistry is offering options for denture wearers that not only make wearing dentures more comfortable, it’s also greatly reducing the learning curve for talking and eating with your denture. This is through dental implants, which are strategically placed in your jawbone to help anchor and support denture better than ever before. With dental implants in place, your denture will no longer slip or move during eating or talking, yet they’re still removable for sleeping and cleaning, giving patients a secure fit and the ability to clean an maintain their dentures.
