Full and Partial Dentures

For reasons that aren’t completely clear, the use of full and partial dentures in restorative dentistry have a little bit of a negative stigma associated with them. But the fact is that this form of dentistry has helped countless individuals restore not only the full use of their teeth, but they’ve helped restore self-confidence too! If you have several missing teeth – or teeth that you know are too damaged to repair through other forms of dentistry such as crowns.

The Basics of Full and Partial Dentures

Simply stated, a full or partial denture consists of prosthetic teeth that attach to an artificial gum plate. In the case of a partial denture, the plate will be comprised with only the amount of material that’s needed to hold artificial teeth in place. In the case of a full denture, the artificial gum plate typically mimics the expanse of the entire restoration area – such as your upper mouth, your lower mouth, or in some cases, both regions. But the biggest takeaway that patients should know is that the prosthetic teeth can be designed to match – or improve upon – the appearance of your natural teeth. For this reason, many patients who seek a complete smile makeover in Phoenix will turn to full or partial dentures as a way to achieve their goals.
