Common Types of Dentures
If you have lost all or most of your natural teeth, you are a candidate for dentures. Without your natural teeth, facial tissue may sag, which might make you look older than you actually are. A full set of dentures can help restore your normal appearance by providing support similar to the support that your natural teeth normally give.
When you are missing a lot or all of your natural teeth, full dentures are usually what you want.
Patients who are only missing a few of their teeth are good candidates for partial dentures. Partial dentures fit in and work with your existing teeth restoring your smile, and ability to chew and talk normally. They also help eliminate the discomfort and embarrassment of having missing teeth.
