When teeth are missing or lost, one option to replacing them is through the use of a denture. There are two types of dentures. The placement of one or the other depends on how many teeth remain.

Removable Partial: The partial appliance is designed to be inserted and removed by the patient. It is held in place by metal clasps surrounding your natural teeth. It can be used in place of a fixed bridge or in cases where a fixed bridge cannot be used.

Complete Dentures: The complete denture is needed when all of a patient's teeth have been lost. It replaces all the natural teeth and is retained through suction from the underlying gum tissues. With today's modern technology complete dentures can be greatly enhanced with the use of implants to retain the denture in place under all conditions.
