Replacing Missing Teeth with Dentures and Partials

17 Dec 2018 Bonness

In our last post, we talked about one of the most effective restorative dentistry options currently available—dental implants. But as effective as they are, dental implants aren’t right for everyone. That’s why Bonness Family Dentistry also offers dentures and partials.

Parials vs. Dentures

Partials and dentures are both great options for replacing missing teeth, but each one is slightly different. A partial is designed to replace just a few teeth and is secured with a clip or bracket. In this sense, it’s similar to a bridge, another great restorative option, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.

Dentures, on the other hand, are designed to replace a complete row of missing teeth. Depending on whether you’re restoring your upper teeth or lower teeth, a traditional denture will be secured in different ways. But like a partial, the replacement teeth are mounted on a gum-colored base, creating a smile that mimics your natural teeth and gums.

One More Option to Consider

There’s one more denture/partial options for patients of Bonness Family Dentistry to consider though. If you need to replace more than one tooth and are a candidate for dental implants, consider getting the restorative care you need with a partial or denture supported by dental implants.
