Partials and Dentures

Dentures

 

Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial.

 

Full dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed.

Partials

Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed.

 

Cleaning Partials and Dentures

Just like natural teeth, dentures need to be properly cared for. Use a gentle cleanser to brush your dentures, always keep them moist when they’re not in use, and be sure to keep your tongue and gums clean as well.
