Dentures and partial dentures can provide an effective solution for missing teeth and help to restore your smile. A ‘complete’ or ‘full’ denture is one which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. A ‘partial’ denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps or ‘precision attachments’. Modern dentistry has moved on a lot and whilst dentures are one option, nowadays there are also other options available. If you have missing teeth and are unsure whether partial or full dentures are the solution, please come and talk to us. The dentist can explain your options, listen to your requirements and advise on the best way forward.
