Partial dentures are artificial appliances that are used to replace missing teeth. Like complete dentures, these appliances can be taken in and out at the patient’s discretion. Unlike complete dentures, retention is achieved by anchoring to the remaining teeth in the arch.
Complete dentures are removable appliances that replace all your teeth in the upper and/or lower jaws. This procedure requires multiple appointments and fittings in order to find the best possible fit. The anchorage for a complete denture is achieved through gum and underlying bone.
