When a person is missing one or more teeth, the resulting empty space can have a significant effect on his or her dental health and overall appearance. For major tooth loss, one of the best options for restoring functionality and aesthetics is a set of partials or full dentures. These artificial teeth can allow a patient to once again bite, chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
For patients who require artificial teeth, there are different types of partials and dentures to choose from, including:
- Full dentures – A full denture set is designed to replace an entire dental arch (upper or lower). The dentures are custom fitted to stay in place with a suction seal onto the existing gum tissue and jawbone structure. The stability and hold of a full denture can be enhanced through the use of dental adhesive creams.
- Partials – Partial dentures can replace a row of multiple missing teeth. Partials are held in place with metal clasps that hug the adjacent natural or crowned teeth on both sides.
- Implant-supported dentures – Both full dentures and partials can be secured with dental implants. These artificial tooth roots are surgically placed into a patient’s jawbone. When the healing process is complete, the dental implants can provide a level of stability and strength that is comparable to natural tooth roots, and far superior to that provided by denture creams.
