comfortable, functionable, and reliable than their predecessors. If you have lost multiple teeth, this treatment may
be a viable option for you. In the following sections, you will learn more about what dentures are, how the

What Are Full and Partial Dentures?
There are two main categories of dentures:
- Full dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They consist of a gum-colored base
row of artificial teeth, which are usually made out of acrylic or porcelain. Natural suction or a mild
helps a full denture to stay in place.
- Partial dentures replace multiple teeth throughout a dental arch. They fit in around the
remaining natural teeth. Small metal attachments help partial dentures to remain secure during eating and
How Dentures Work
Benefits of Full and Partial Dentures
Some of the most noteworthy benefits of full and partial dentures include:
- Cost-effectiveness. Dentures tend to have a lower upfront price than other types of tooth
replacement (such as dental implants).
- Caring for dentures is relatively simple and does not take a lot of time.
- You may have to adjust your eating habits a bit so you do not destabilize your new teeth while you are
but you should be able to enjoy almost any food.
- As long as you visit us periodically to get your dentures relined (adjusted), they should continue to fit
and feel comfortable throughout their lifespan.
Cost of Full and Partial Dentures
In general, dentures are a relatively affordable form of tooth replacement. The exact cost of your denture will
depend on a few factors, including the materials used to make it and how many teeth you are replacing. In many
cases, dental insurance is willing to cover at least a portion of the cost of dentures. Low-interest financing
also available for most patients.
