Full or partial tooth loss, if left untreated, doesn’t just affect a person’s self-image, it can also increase the risk of developing nutritional problems and other systemic health disorders. Currently, there are a number of options available for people who have lost their teeth. One of the most versatile and affordable is complete or partial dentures.
Full dentures comprise an entire set of upper and/or lower teeth. This type of denture is utilized when all natural teeth are missing or need to be removed and uses suction to stay in place.
Partial dentures replace only a limited number of teeth, not an entire set. Partial dentures are a single connected piece that sits on a metal or resin framework and is supported by the remaining teeth and gums.
