Dentures VS. Partials: What’s the Difference?
There are many differences between dentures and partials that patients should be aware of when looking for a permanent solution to their missing, cracked, or decayed teeth. Full dentures are designed for patients that have several teeth missing on the top or bottom arch of their mouth. When this is the case, a complete row of teeth will be designed using a mold of your mouth to replace all of your natural teeth. These can be easily removed just like partial dentures, however, no natural teeth are remaining.
Partial dentures are also custom-made, just like full dentures, however, there are only a few prosthetic teeth attached to a plate that is inserted in and around your existing teeth. Depending on the severity of your dental needs will determine which set of dentures is right for you.
Full dentures are the complete replacement of natural teeth using custom-made, removable prosthetic teeth that are inserted over your gums. Our dentists recommend full dentures as a solution for those that are missing an entire row of top or bottom teeth due to damage or decay, or have several missing on both top and bottom with oral health that needs professional care. Our full dentures sets are made from acrylic or plastic that is fabricated in a lab using a mold of your gums to comfortably attach the prosthetics in your mouth that will aid in everyday habits such as eating, talking, chewing, and smiling.
Partial dentures are for patients that still have several, quality teeth intact, but are needing to complete their smile with custom teeth that fit their gums. Once our dentists determine that partials are a good option to replace your cracked or extracted teeth, prosthetics will be fitted to a plate that is then fitted to your healthy teeth and gums. Partials are a great solution for patients as they can be removed easily and are almost unrecognizable from your existing teeth. Contact our staff in Metamora, IL for a consultation on our partial denture services to see if they are a good solution to your oral health needs.
