Replacement of Missing Teeth By Dentures or Partial Dentures
Partial Dentures can replace a few lost teeth, but not a whole upper or lower set. You must have some healthy teeth in the upper and lower areas of your mouth to acquire Partial Dentures. In contrast, Full Dentures replace all completely missing teeth in the arch. For better stability and function, Full Dentures can be supported by use of implants.
Partial dentures can be fabricated virtually by the use of digital imaging and 3D printing. The other types include all acrylic and combination of metal and acrylic.
Typically Full Dentures are not very stable, and not very comfortable to wear. By placing implants, we are able to attach the denture to the implants for stability and support to improve function and comfort.
