What is a Partial Denture?
Partial dentures are often called “partials” for short. Unlike full dentures, the teeth aren’t all in a row; they’re carefully spread across the base so that they’ll fill in any gaps in your mouth when you put the partial in. You can take a partial in and out of your mouth at any time. It normally relies on a clip or bracket to stay in place.
What is a Denture?
Dentures as they’re commonly thought of are also known as full dentures. As you can expect, they consist of a complete row of teeth that rest on a gum-colored base. They require denture adhesive to hold them in place.
Dental Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials
Do you not want to have to worry about a denture that you have to remove for cleanings? Both full and partial dentures can be permanently anchored in the mouth with small titanium posts known as dental implants. Implants can be placed in your mouth during a brief surgical procedure. Once your mouth has healed, the implants can support your implants so that you can use them to bite, speak, and smile without worrying about them slipping.
