Complete vs. Partial Dentures

Posted .

You can have a beautiful smile at any age whether your teeth are natural or not. Our team at Quail Ridge Dental is happy to make beautiful smiles more achievable with dentures. You can receive one of two different types of dentures to provide a complete smile if you are missing teeth:

Complete Dentures
These dental appliances are used to replace a full arch in your mouth, whether you need one arch or both replaced. Our team can help you replace one arch or both to complete your smile for many more years. You may find that you can better secure your dentures in your mouth by using a denture adhesive.

Partial Dentures
A partial denture is an appliance that replaces a few missing teeth if you still have some natural teeth remaining. This appliance is formed with a thin framework or uses clasps to attach to your smile, providing a secure fit in your mouth. Partial dentures also offer greater stability for your natural teeth so that your overall smile is stronger.

If you are unsure how to improve your oral health following tooth loss, and if you would like to schedule an appointment for dentures in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, call Quail Ridge Dental today at 928-855-5042. You can pose your questions or concerns to our dentist, Dr. Jeffery Carver.
