Whether you’ve lost many teeth or just a few, a partial denture can be designed to fill in all the gaps. Usually, partial dentures come with clasps that let them stay attached to the healthy teeth that you still have. Most people won’t be able to tell which teeth are part of the denture thanks to the natural appearance of the prosthesis.
A full denture is used when an entire arch of teeth is missing. Suction naturally occurs between the gums and the base of the denture, which is what keeps your new teeth in their proper place. Like partial dentures, full dentures are made to resemble the natural teeth as closely as possible.
Implant dentures tend to feel more lifelike than traditional dentures because the implant posts that hold them in place act similarly to real tooth roots. Generally, a denture attached to dental implants is more secure, and oftentimes you can even leave it in your mouth 24/7. (Meanwhile, traditional dentures need to be removed at night.)
