Made of an acrylic material which simulates the teeth and gums, a partial denture is a removable appliance, supported by your own natural teeth. Partial dentures may be required when there are one or more missing teeth in an arch. Sometimes framework and metal clasps may be added for support and strength.
A partial denture takes several appointments to complete. There are other options for replacing single or multiple missing teeth. Schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Calvin Chan to find out which is the best treatment for you.
A complete denture is a removable appliance prescribed when all teeth are missing in one or both arches. Complete dentures are also made of an acrylic material to resemble the gum tissues and teeth it is replacing.
If you have any questions regarding dentures, schedule a denture consultation appointment with Dr. Calvin Chan.
