What are the types of dentures?

While dentures can be made from various materials, there are only three “types” of dentures:

  • Complete dentures
  • Partial dentures
  • Implant-retained dentures

We use quality materials for our dentures in Mountainside, NJ to create lasting and beautiful prosthetics for our patients.

Full, Partial, and Implant-Supported Dentures

If you have total tooth loss, we can fabricate a custom denture to stand in for all of your teeth. A complete denture is a gum-colored prosthetic that fits over the contours of your jaw, relying on suction and gravity for stability. The prosthetic is fitted with natural-looking replacement teeth.

A partial denture works for sporadic or partial tooth loss. It is similar to a complete denture but with a few key differences. First, the prosthetic only holds teeth where yours are missing. Next, it depends on healthy remaining teeth for stability and special clips.

An implant-supported denture is fixed to your jaw with four to six dental implants. This provides a more stable tooth replacement that never requires adhesives or relines.

No matter the option you need, you can count on a custom denture, partial, or implant denture that works for your smile. We even customize the teeth shades and gum color to your specifications.
