What are the types of dentures?

If you have complete or partial tooth loss, replacing missing teeth is crucial to your future oral health and emotional well-being. Partial and complete dentures in Webster Groves, MO are a reliable option to restore your smile.

Tooth loss can cause remaining teeth to shift, leading to wear on your teeth and putting you at an increased risk for cavities, and even fractures.

Types of Dentures

At Webster Groves Dental, we offer two types of dentures: complete and partial.

Complete dentures stand in for total tooth loss. They are arches, or gum-colored plates, with artificial teeth placed to fill in for your tooth loss. Full dentures are customized to fit your gums and bone structure. They are also colored to look natural.

Partial dentures are also customized, but the plates or arches hold only teeth in the places where yours are missing. Unlike complete dentures that depend on gravity, suction, and boney jaw ridges for stabilization, partial dentures also rely on these things but with the addition of clips and healthy teeth for support.
