Difference Between Dentures and Partials

Difference Between Dentures and Partials

by Yenny (SU)
Many people are familiar with dentures, although they may be less familiar with recent advances in dental technology that allow more people than ever to eat, smile and laugh again with a full set of lovely, natural looking, fully functional teeth. Dentures are a form of artificial teeth that may come as a full set, or a partial. This helps patients who have lost teeth due to gum disease, accident, or dental decay. The main difference between a partial and a full denture is the number of teeth that are replaced by the dental prosthetic. Partial dentures fit between the remaining teeth while full dentures replace an entire upper or lower set of teeth.
