A partial denture, though removable, provides form and functional replacement for missing teeth. Partial dentures are indicated if some serviceable teeth are present for support in conjunction with the gums and jawbone. If a partial is loose and having trouble staying in your mouth we can use implants to help give support and retention to a removable partial. This will allow you to chew and eat much better.
Full dentures are used if there are not any teeth left for support. The full denture covers more of the jaw than a partial denture and is partly held in place by a natural vacuum in the mouth. With new advances in implant dentistry, dentures can be made to lock into your mouth. This provides you the ability to chew and eat things your old dentures may not have allowed you to. With as few as two implants, a lower denture can go from a wobbly mess to a stable set of teeth.
