If you’re interested in restoring your oral health with dentures in Beaver, Pennsylvania, but you’re not sure what the differences are between complete and partial dentures, then our Pamela Crumrine DDS team is here to help you! There are many differences between the two appliances, and the differences are:

Complete dentures
Complete dentures are meant to give you the smile you’ve always wanted when you don’t have any natural teeth remaining. This appliance represents the gums and teeth, and it is suctioned to the roof of the mouth. The denture is placed over the gums and it gives you the ability to eat and speak once again.

Partial dentures
Partial dentures are meant to replace your missing teeth when you have one or more missing teeth in a row. The appliance represents your gums and teeth and it is placed into the gap of your smile. When placed in the gap, you will clasp the denture onto the remaining teeth on both sides and you will have a complete smile once again.
