What are dentures?

Dentures are oral appliances used to replace multiple teeth that have been lost or removed. Created from prosthetic teeth set into a gum-colored base, dentures can be easily removed as needed for cleaning. Based on your personal dental needs, dentures can be used to replace just a few teeth or all of your teeth. There are two main types of dentures, complete and partial, and our dentist will help you determine which kind would best meet your needs and desires.

What are complete dentures?

Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth in a full dental arch are missing. A complete denture may be worn in the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches.

What are partial dentures?

Sometimes referred to simply as partials, partial dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth if some natural teeth are still left. In many cases, the partial uses a thin framework or clasps to attach to the remaining teeth.

Do I need dentures?

Dr. Scott Lindsay may recommend dentures if you are missing multiple teeth and are looking for a tooth replacement solution. With dentures, we can:

  • Restore your ability to properly speak, chew, and eat
  • Improve the natural volume and shape of your face
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile
