What are Complete Dentures?

Complete dentures are best intended for patients missing all their teeth. Whether you came to the dentist missing all teeth or needed teeth extracted, complete dentures can offer solutions to both situations. If you have teeth removed, then you’ll wear a temporary denture while your gum tissue heals. This is known as an immediate denture is provided right after teeth are extracted so you don’t have to be without teeth while your permanent denture is being made. However, you’ll need to come back for adjustments throughout this healing period as your bone and gums change shape.

  • Upper dentures 
    Upper dentures are held in place by a vacuum created between your appliance and the palate of your mouth.
  • Lower dentures
    Lower dentures are horseshoe-shaped to accommodate the tongue, and, due to lack of suction, are often held in place by implants placed in the jaw for support.

What are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are meant to only replace a handful of teeth, however they’re more comprehensive than a traditional bridge. For example, if you’re missing consecutive teeth on both sides of a single arch, a partial denture would be the best solution. When you’re only missing a handful of teeth, your remaining teeth can easily begin to shift into these open spaces if a denture isn’t in place.

Proper denture care is essential to the durability of your dentures and the overall health of your mouth. Be sure to:

  • Brush your dentures daily with a soft-bristled tooth brush. (Don’t forget to brush your gums and tongue as well.)
  • While not being worn, keep your dentures in denture solution and/or water (not hot) to prevent warping.
  • Handle with care and keep out of the reach of children and pets.
