Complete & Partial Dentures

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are a crucial treatment option in restorative dentistry for individuals who have lost all of their natural teeth. These removable prosthetic devices are designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, providing functional and aesthetic benefits. Complete dentures consist of an acrylic base that mimics the appearance of gum tissue, while artificial teeth are securely attached to this base. The fabrication involves taking impressions of the patient’s mouth to ensure a precise fit. Complete dentures are custom-made to match the patient’s facial features and provide optimal support for the lips and cheeks, enhancing facial aesthetics. Patients may require an adjustment period to adapt to their new dentures. Still, with proper care and regular check-ups, complete dentures can significantly improve a person’s ability to chew, speak, and restore their smile.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures play a vital role in restorative dentistry for patients who have lost several teeth but still have some remaining natural teeth. These removable dental appliances are designed to fill the gaps created by missing teeth, improving both function and appearance. Partial dentures consist of a metal framework or acrylic base that attaches to the existing natural teeth for stability. Artificial teeth are then carefully positioned to match the patient’s remaining dentition, restoring a natural-looking smile. Besides enhancing aesthetics, partial dentures help distribute biting forces evenly, preventing adjacent teeth from shifting and maintaining proper dental alignment. The fabrication involves taking impressions and precise measurements to ensure a comfortable fit and optimal functionality. With regular maintenance and proper oral hygiene, partial dentures can improve patients’ chewing ability, speech clarity, and renewed confidence in their smiles.
