Partial Denture

What is a Partial Denture?

A partial denture commonly referred to as simply a partial consists of multiple teeth on a gum-colored base. The teeth are not in a row, but rather spread across the base to fit like a puzzle with your existing teeth. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.

What is a Denture?

A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Dentures can be closed or open palate and they may require denture adhesive to hold them in place.

Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials

Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. If you prefer a secure full or partial denture and do not want clips or adhesive, then consider implant-supported dentures. In a brief surgery, an implant dentist can secure a few dental implant posts to hold your dentures in place. With implant-supported dentures, you won’t have to worry about slippage, and your prosthetic will feel safe and sound.
