Traditional Full Dentures
When an entire arch of natural teeth have been lost, a traditional full denture can provide comprehensive coverage when patients need it most. This style of prosthetic is designed to sit on top of the natural gum line and stay in place through natural suction. Some patients prefer to use a little extra denture adhesive for additional stability, but this shouldn’t be necessary. Your full denture will be removable and should be taken out of the mouth while sleeping and when practicing oral hygiene.
Traditional Partial Dentures
If the patient has lost certain teeth along a single arch of the mouth and wants to preserve the natural, healthy structure that remains, a partial denture is the right choice. This style of prosthetic will attach into place with the help of brackets and/or clasps, filling these gaps in a lifelike and functional manner. Like full dentures, partials are designed to be removable.
At Morgan-Hill Dental Care, we strongly recommend that our patients consider outfitting their new or existing denture with state-of-the-art dental implants. Because implants are placed directly within the jawbone, they support oral health and also prevent the gradual deterioration of the jawbone over time, which is often what leads to a “hunched” facial appearance in elderly people. Once anchored in place over implants, your new “teeth” will also feel more stable, provide a wider range of function, and last longer without the need for repairs and replacements.
