There are two different types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures. Both are removable dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth. One (the full denture) is used when you’ve lost all of your top or bottom teeth, while the other (the partial denture) is used when some teeth still remain. Why replace your teeth with a full denture or partial denture? If you've lost some or all of your teeth, it can seriously affect your ability to speak and eat properly and change the shape of your face, making you appear older. Full dentures and partial dentures fill out the shape of your face and allow you to live without the pain and embarrassment of impaired speech and problems eating. We will make sure that your full dentures or partial dentures are custom fit for the greatest possible comfort.
If you would like to explore other options for tooth replacement, we offer bridgework and dental implants as well. These options are fixed rather than removable. Contact our Framingham, MA dental office and we will help you choose the option that works best with your current state of oral health.
