Full Dentures vs. Partial Dentures: Which is Better for You?

If you have missing teeth or need to undergo tooth extraction, you might be considering dentures or partial dentures as a solution. While both options are effective for restoring your smile, it can be challenging to determine which one is better suited for your needs. In this blog post, our dentists at Cityscape Square Dental will provide guidance to help you decide between full dentures or partial dentures.

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable appliances that replace all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw. They are made of a gum-colored base that fits over your gums and supports the replacement teeth.

How will I know if I need dentures?

Dentures are recommended by our dentists to patients of all ages more frequently than you might expect. While you may have assumed that they are only suitable for certain types of patients or seniors, the decision to choose this tooth replacement option is based on several factors specific to your situation, as determined by you and your dentist.

Regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene habits can help prevent the need for dentures. However, if you have a history of dental problems or have experienced dental issues in the past, dentures may be a suitable option for you in the future.

What are the two types of dentures?

To maintain your oral health, it's essential to replace missing teeth. If you are missing one or more teeth, ask your dentist whether full or partial dentures are right for you.  

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are a great option if you have only a few missing teeth and want a more affordable solution than dental implants or bridges. Partial dentures can also help prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place, which can occur when you have gaps in your smile.

Full Dentures

If you are missing all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw, full dentures can be used to replace them. Depending on your needs, these can be combined with implants to provide a more secure fit for your teeth.

Which Is Right for You?

Ultimately, the decision between full dentures and partial dentures will depend on your individual needs and preferences. If you are missing all or most of your teeth, full dentures may be the best option for you. However, if you have only a few missing teeth, partial dentures may be a more affordable and practical solution.

Both dentures and partial dentures can be great options for restoring your smile and improving your quality of life. If you're not sure which option is right for you, schedule a consultation with one of our dental professionals at Cityscape Square Dental. We'll help you explore all of your options and find the best solution for your individual needs.
