Dentures are special, prosthetic appliances that replace missing teeth. Depending on how many teeth are missing, one may need either full dentures or partial dentures. Full dentures — also known as complete dentures — are for individuals who have lost all of their teeth or whose remaining teeth must be removed. Partial dentures replace only the teeth that are no longer healthy and functional.
Full dentures can be placed directly on the gums or utilize different stabilization techniques. Overdentures are full dentures that go over some of your natural teeth for secure positioning. Implant-supported dentures are an option for those who cannot or do not wish to use overdentures.
