The Differences Between Complete and Partial Dentures

Do you ever wonder what the differences are between complete and partial dentures? If so, then our Smiles Dental team is more than happy to tell you! Even though they are both dentures, they do have quite a few differences, like:

Complete dentures
Complete dentures are meant to replace every tooth in your smile. Oftentimes, your few remaining teeth need to be removed in order to wear dentures. Once your mouth heals, you will be able to wear the appliance and have the stunning smile you’ve always wanted. Complete dentures are removable, and they represent the gums as well as the teeth.

Partial dentures
Partial dentures are meant to fill a gap in your smile when you still have natural teeth remaining. This appliance fits into that space and clasps onto the permanent teeth that lie on both sides. The partial denture is removable and it gives you the full and complete smile you’ve been looking for.
