Missing teeth can cause a serious dip in your self-confidence, making you unwilling to show your full smile. This can seriously affect your personal and professional relationships, especially when meeting new people. Dentures can help restore your smile and your confidence. A denture is a well-known dental prosthetic that is used as a replacement for missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. This removable prosthetic is available in two different types: partial dentures and complete dentures.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures is a removable device that is used when a few natural teeth still remain in place on your upper and lower jaws. These consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum colored plastic, which is then held in place using an over-the-counter dental adhesive. There are also fixed partial dentures that are the same as removable partials, except for the fact that they are cemented into place and supported by the surrounding teeth. This helps to fill the gaps formed by missing teeth and prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
What Are Complete Dentures?
Complete dentures are used if all of your teeth have been lost or removed for any reason. This restoration gives you back your ability to chew and speak properly, and restores your smile. Complete dentures are custom made to fit your mouth and will resemble your natural teeth. These prosthetics are removable so that adjustments can be made to ensure a proper fit over time, as bone and gum loss may occur when none of your natural teeth are present.
