Partial vs. Complete Dentures: What’s Best for You?

Dentures have long been a reliable solution when it comes to replacing missing teeth. At Total Freedom Dental Implant Center in Scottsdale, AZ, Dr. Gerald L. Kaiser, DDS, offers expert guidance on choosing between partial and complete dentures, ensuring patients make an informed decision suited to their specific dental needs.

Understanding Dentures

Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and restore functionality and appearance. They come in two main types: partial and complete dentures, each catering to different needs based on the number and location of missing teeth.

Partial Dentures: When Not All Teeth Are Missing

Partial dentures are ideal for individuals who still have some natural teeth remaining. They are designed to fill in gaps, preventing remaining teeth from shifting and maintaining oral structure. These dentures are usually attached to natural teeth with clasps or precision attachments, blending seamlessly with your natural smile.

Complete Dentures: For a Full-Mouth Restoration

Complete dentures, on the other hand, are used when all teeth in an arch (upper or lower) are missing. These dentures rest on the gums and are custom-made to fit comfortably and look natural. They are an effective solution for individuals who have lost all their teeth due to decay, gum disease, or injury.

Factors to Consider in Your Decision

When choosing between partial and complete dentures, consider:

  • Number of Missing Teeth: Partial dentures are suitable for a few missing teeth, while complete dentures are for a full arch.
  • Oral Health: The health of remaining teeth and gums plays a crucial role in the suitability of partial dentures.
  • Lifestyle and Comfort: Individual preferences for comfort, aesthetics, and ease of maintenance should be considered.
