What are dentures?

Dentures are removable, prosthetic teeth that are a great alternative for our patients looking for a simpler, more affordable method for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Romeo and Dr. Cardenas, our skilled dentists, offer two types of dentures for your convenience. They are full dentures and partial dentures. We will work together to determine which type of denture will work best for your individual needs and goals.

What is the difference between full and partial dentures?

While full dentures and partial dentures are both removable and designed to replace missing teeth, they function differently. Full dentures are used when you need to replace all of the teeth in your smile and are made from prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base. Full dentures rest on your gums, often with the aid of a denture adhesive. Partial dentures, while still utilizing a base, are used when there are some natural teeth remaining in your smile. These teeth, along with a thin metal framework, are also used to hold the partial denture in place.
