What is Meant by Dentures and Partials?
Dentures and partials are a kind of prosthetic. The term partial is short for “denture partial.” In other words, a denture replaces all—or most—of the upper or lower teeth, while a partial denture replaces a section of the lower or upper teeth. These are both kinds of dental appliances that restore the appearance of your smile and your ability to eat and speak with ease. Dentures and partials also restore dental health by preventing or minimizing jaw bone degradation in the absence of natural teeth. For those who are missing all their natural teeth in the lower or upper arch, a set of complete dentures can make an enormous difference, while for those with only a few missing teeth, partial dentures can fill the gaps.
What’s the Process For Getting Dentures and Partials?
Unlike dental implants or implant-supported dentures, traditional dentures, and partials do not require surgery. The process is complex, but when you work with a quality dentist in Tucson, AZ, you can be sure that the process of getting dentures or partials will be efficient and accurate.
