So you’re looking for a tooth replacement option? Dentures are a great way to sure up your smile. But what’s a better fit for your smile, full or partial dentures? Read on to find out.

Full vs. Partial Dentures

Full dentures are, quite simply, a full set of false teeth. Of course, that means that the patient must be missing the entire set of teeth in order to need complete dentures. Extractions may be performed before beginning denture use. If that’s not the case, partial dentures are also an option. Partial dentures include just a few teeth attached to the false gum. Though removable, they clip snuggly onto adjacent crowns or implants. If you’re missing just a few teeth, partial dentures would be the choice for you. Both full and partial options are custom made to give your smile a realistic and beautiful boost.

Benefits of Dentures

So, what can dentures do for you? Replacing and improving your smile can boost your self-esteem and make your life easier. Today’s dentures are comfortable, beautiful, and accessible. Dentures are also cost-effective, long lasting, and durable.
