Dentures are a removable replacement option for missing
teeth. There are two types of dentures – full and partial. Full dentures are
made when you are missing all of your teeth and partial dentures are used when
you are missing only some of your teeth. A full denture is supported by your bony ridge
or sometimes by an implant (overdenture).
A partial denture attaches to
your natural teeth. Your natural teeth act as an anchor for the partial denture
to stay in place. A partial denture is a removable alternative to a bridge.
Full dentures are made of acrylic.
Partial dentures are made in acrylic or flexible material.
Columbus Dental Arts will custom-fit dentures specifically
for your mouth and consult with you on how to properly clean and maintain them.
