Full and Partial Dentures

A pair of dentures is a prosthetic that, depending on a patient’s needs and what their dentist advises, can be fixed or removable.

Full or complete dentures are provided to patients who are missing all their natural teeth, or their teeth need to be extracted. They consist of an acrylic base that fits over the gums and a set of artificial teeth constructed from porcelain. In comparison, a set of partial dentures is provided when there are some natural teeth still present. They consist also consist of porcelain teeth and a metal framework that helps the device stay in place.

Benefits to Wearing Dentures

There are multiple benefits to wearing dentures; one of the primary advantages is that they can vastly improve a person’s ability to speak and eat properly. Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew certain foods or pronounce certain words, and dentures can help restore these functions.

Dentures can also help refine a person’s appearance by filling in gaps and restoring the shape of the face. This can help boost self-confidence and improve quality of life.

It is important to note, however, that dentures may not be the best option for everyone. Factors such as the condition of the gums and jawbone, oral health, and overall health should be taken into consideration when determining if dentures are a good choice. Talk to your local dentist or a denturist for more information.
