Ruggless Dental

What is the difference between full dentures and a partial denture?

Everyone deserves to have a healthy and attractive smile. However, sometimes, life can throw us a curveball, resulting in lost teeth. Fortunately, modern dentistry has made tooth replacements even more beautiful and realistic than ever.

At Ruggless Dental, we provide patients with custom-made dentures to replace missing teeth so they can reclaim their smiles. 

What Is a Denture? 

A denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces missing teeth. The two most common types of dentures are full dentures and partial dentures. 

Full Dentures vs. Partial Dentures 

Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, replace an entire arch of teeth. Full dentures are used when a patient has no remaining natural teeth.  

Partial dentures replace some missing teeth, so they’re used when a person still has natural teeth remaining. The partial denture uses natural surrounding teeth to stay secure and supported in the mouth. 

Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Ruggless can determine which tooth replacement option is best for you.
