Partial dentures are used to replace teeth when there are some missing teeth. They are often made with a metal substructure to provide strength and increase the comfort for patients while chewing. Some people are candidates for dentures without metal and options will be discussed with the dentist.
Complete dentures are made when a patient is missing all of his or her teeth on either the top, bottom or both. There are multiple appointments involved to achieve a great pair of dentures that will last the patient a long time. Great care is taken to select teeth that are the right shape and color and look as natural as possible.
