What are dentures?
Dentures are removable dental appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. The type of dentures that most people envision when they think of dentures are full dentures, which are used to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Full dentures can be used to replace all of the teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both.
What are partial dentures?
Partial dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth when some natural teeth remain. While full dentures rest on the gums, partial dentures are anchored through the use of a framework or clasps that attach to the neighboring natural teeth.
