Understanding the Difference Between Full and Partial Dentures

Dentures offer a restorative dental option to regain the ability to enjoy your favorite foods and speak with ease and confidence. Removable dental appliances, dentures replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue, closely resembling natural teeth to enhance your appearance. There are two main types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by missing teeth while preventing adjacent teeth from shifting. These dentures attach to existing teeth by resting on the gums and bone in the areas of missing teeth. In some cases, our doctors may recommend placing a few implants to enhance the stability and retention of partial dentures for added comfort.

Full Dentures

When all teeth need replacement, full dentures are the solution. There are two main categories of full dentures: conventional and immediate.

Conventional full dentures are crafted after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed.

Immediate dentures, on the other hand, are prepared in advance and are ready for use immediately after teeth extraction, preventing the discomfort of living without teeth during the healing process. While adjusting to chewing and speaking with dentures may take time, most individuals can resume normal eating habits once acclimated. However, harder or sticky foods may require practice or avoidance, depending on individual comfort levels and dentist recommendations. Consider exploring options for implant-supported dentures, which have become the standard of care for replacing all missing teeth. While dentures are durable appliances designed to last for many years, occasional maintenance such as remaking, repairing, or readjusting may be necessary due to normal wear and tear.
