Types of Dentures

Dentures come in a few different varieties. The two basic types are full and partial.

Full Denture

A full denture replaces an entire set of missing teeth (upper and lower).

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures generally fill in a gap of 3 or more teeth where a bridge won’t provide enough support. These prosthetics are typically made of acrylic but can be placed over a metal base for added strength. Newer versions are made of flexible resin, which offers a more comfortable, precise fit for some patients.
