Complete dentures or partial dentures: which is right for me?
There are two main types of dentures: partial dentures and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when one or more healthy teeth still remain in the mouth, and consist of a gum-coloured plastic base with the replacement teeth attached to it. This option comfortably fills the gaps left by the missing teeth and stops the remaining teeth from shifting position and becoming crooked. Complete dentures are used when there are no teeth remaining, and are custom-made to fit perfectly within your mouth. Both options are highly effective ways to restore normality to your life, allowing you to eat, smile and speak with ease and comfort.
