There are two kinds of dentures: Full vs. Partials
- Full dentures are designed to replace all of your teeth on the entire dental arch. A full denture is held in place by latching onto the existing gum tissue and jawbone structure that remains. The stability of the denture can be improved through the use of dental adhesives. If you have lost most or all of your teeth you are an ideal candidate for full dentures.
- Partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth in a patient’s mouth if missing teeth are all in a row. They also stay in place the same way – with dental adhesives.
