Patients with more extensive tooth loss will likely need to consider partial or full dentures. Partial dentures, often referred to simply as partials, are used to replace any number of consecutive or nonconsecutive teeth along an arch. These prosthetics are crafted using a natural looking base material that is molded to fit between healthy teeth supporting replacement teeth and filling the gaps in patient’s smiles. Partials are stabilized by metallic clasps or braces that attach to surrounding teeth. Full dentures are similarly made using a gum-colored base to support the row of replacement teeth, but they are held in place by natural suction between the denture and patient’s gums and jawbone.
