Dentures come in two types:

  • Complete Dentures
  • Partial dentures

Complete dentures are designed to replace the teeth in an entire arch when all the teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when there are still some teeth present in the arch. Complete and partial dentures can provide patients with a functional replacement when teeth have been lost.

Complete dentures consist of an acrylic base that imitates gum tissue, and teeth that are also made of acrylic. The denture base is designed to closely fit the contours of the arch to ensure the denture will be stable during eating, speaking and swallowing.

Partial dentures can be made with a metal framework that has an acrylic base and teeth attached in the areas where the teeth are missing. The metal framework has clasps that extend out and fit around some of the existing teeth. The combination of the acrylic base and clasps keeps the partial denture stable during normal use.
