A smile just isn't a smile if it's incomplete. Missing teeth can cause a host of problems, from difficulty speaking and eating, to jawbone deterioration to low self-confidence. Fortunately, losing a tooth no longer means you have to give up on your smile. Advances in dental materials and technology have made full and partial dentures more affordable, lifelike, and comfortable than ever.

What is a Partial?
A partial denture, commonly referred to simply as a partial, consists of multiple teeth on a gum colored base. The teeth are not necessarily in a row, but may be spread across the base to fit like a puzzle with your existing teeth. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets and, unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.
What is a Denture?
A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Dentures can be closed or open palate, and they may require denture adhesive to hold them in place.
Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials
Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. If you prefer a secure full or partial denture and do not want clips or adhesive, then implant-supported dentures are the perfect solution. In a brief surgery, an implant dentist can secure a few dental implant posts to hold your dentures in place. With implant-supported dentures, you won't have to worry about your denture slipping or shifting and your prosthetic will feel secure all the time.
