3D rendering of partial dentures being placed on a lower jaw with missing back teethWhenever you have suffered massive tooth loss and decay, it can be the perfect time to look at dentures. Thanks to new advances in dental care, dentures are not what they used to be. Dentures are not just for the elderly but can give anyone at any age a perfect and healthy smile. But there are two main types of dentures, full and partial, and today All Star Dental & Implant Center is going to walk you through the differences.

How Dentures work

Dentures are made from detailed measurements and pictures of your unique smile, facial structure, and the number of teeth you have lost. We design a denture that is perfectly formatted for your mouth and looks very lifelike. It will be unique to you and perfectly fit your mouth.

Acrylic materials act as the gums, and the teeth are often made from ceramics. Dentures can be slightly hard to clean and will need to be soaked in water every night. Otherwise, they act exactly like real teeth. You can smile, eat, chew, and bite to your heart’s content.

Two Types of Dentures

Both types of dentures are really self-explanatory. A full set of dentures looks at every single tooth, either in the whole mouth or on one of the arches. If you have lost a noticeable amount of teeth all in one place, this is the one to get.

The teeth are either held in your mouth with suction, or with adhesives to keep them in place. If you have lost multiple teeth due to gum disease, and have lost jawbone strength as well, we will install the dentures with dental implants. This will stimulate bone growth and also fix the dentures in your mouth.

Partial dentures are designed for people who have gaps all around their smiles. If the gaps are not close together, then a full set of dentures will not work. The partial set of dentures will help you have a full smile while clasping to your real teeth in order to protect your smile. Otherwise, the fake teeth will look just like your real ones.

Cleaning your Dentures

No matter what type of dentures you have, you will need to clean them regularly. The best way to clean them is to take them out and night and soak them in water. Additionally, you can (and in the partial’s case should) brush them just like regular teeth to help remove any excess food.

Dentures can be a home for bacteria just like your normal teeth can, so you will want to make sure that they are properly cleaned and cared for. If not, your dentures can get dirty and potentially even infected. Getting infected dentures is often harder to deal with than removing teeth, so be sure to keep them clean.
