Partial and Full Denturesimage of woman getting dentures

Maintaining the health and strength of your natural teeth is always the best option, but in extreme circumstances multiple teeth, or a full mouth of teeth, may need to be replaced. In this case, removable dentures are an ideal way to provide you with a healthy and functioning mouth and a beautiful smile.

Dentures are a durable and removable prosthetic alternative to missing natural teeth. They are usually constructed of acrylic plastics that are colored to look like your gums and teeth. There are two main types of dentures available: full dentures and partial dentures.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are the option when all of a patient’s teeth need to be replaced. Dr. Colletta will take a mold of your mouth to ensure that the dentures are custom created to fit you, allowing you to speak and chew properly. Full dentures will fit over your gums, providing you with a full compliment of teeth.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when a patient is missing a number of teeth in a row. Partial dentures, like full dentures, are created to match your existing gum and tooth colors. The replacement teeth are designed to provide a natural fit in-between your remaining teeth, bridging the space and preventing movement of the teeth in your mouth.

Dentures are a great way to restore your original smile, the functionality of your mouth and your confidence. Finding the right dentures to fit your dental needs and lifestyle is important.
