What is the difference between a partial and full denture?

If you are living with the loss of multiple teeth, you know how challenging some of the daily activities most of us take for granted can become. For example, you might feel self-conscious about ordering a steak at your favorite restaurant because it's difficult to chew. Or, you may avoid talking with other people due to the gaps in your smile.

Full or Partial Dentures at Atlantic Dental

The good news is that a full or partial denture can provide you with the function and aesthetics that will help you feel confident again, and your dentist in Ocean City can help.

A partial denture is ideal for patients who are missing a few teeth but still do have quite a few healthy teeth remaining. The appliance is removable and fits in your mouth much like a retainer using metal or plastic clasps to anchor to healthy teeth. Artificial teeth are attached to the appliance to fill in the gaps in your smile. 

Full dentures are designed to restore an entire arch of missing teeth. This appliance is also removable and typically made of acrylic that is designed to complement your facial structure and skin tone to deliver a natural appearance.
