Left untreated, full or partial tooth loss can not only affect your self-image, but can also increase your risk of developing future nutritional and systemic health problems. Now, there are plenty of denture options available for patients who have unfortunately lost one or more missing teeth. One of the more affordable and versatile options are 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 are designed to replace only a few missing teeth rather than an entire set. A partial denture is a single piece that rests on a resin or metal frame and is supported by the adjacent natural teeth and gums.
