Types of Dentures

  1. There are two main types of removable dentures:
  • full dentures – are used when all of the teeth in one jaw are missing. These dentures are made from plastic.
  • partial dentures – are made when there are some teeth missing, but other teeth remain. The denture replaces only the teeth that are missing. These dentures can be made from plastic, metal or a combination of both. They usually have little metal clasps which rest or grip on the natural teeth to hold the denture in place. It is important for your remaining teeth to be in good health, to support the part denture.
