Partial Dentures vs Full Dentures

Depending on the current condition of your teeth and overall dental health, you may need either partial or complete dentures. Complete, also known as full, dentures are usually recommended in conjunction with the extraction of all teeth. This is a complete replacement of your existing teeth.

Partial Dentures are closely related to dental bridges. They involve the replacement of a few teeth rather than all of your teeth and can be a good solution when you still have plenty of healthy, functioning teeth.

You can learn more about Partial and Full Dentures on our Dentures page.

How to Care for Dentures

It’s very important that you take good care of your dentures on a daily basis. This helps extend their life and will also improve your oral hygiene.

Brush regularly, using a soft-bristle denture brush. You’ll want to brush every corner of your dentures to ensure that you remove any plaque, food particles and other debris. It’s important that you take care to avoid damaging your dentures while brushing them – take it easy, brush softly and be thorough.

You should remove your dentures overnight and let them dry out. This can help prevent bacterial growth and may also give your teeth and jaws a chance to relax. Some people choose to soak their dentures in a denture cleanser. Make sure you consult your dentist before doing this, however, as not all denture cleansers are compatible with all dentures.

Denture Adjustment

Many people need denture adjustments, either within the months after getting their new dentures or due to changes over long periods. Our new prosthetist, Young Jae Son, is happy to help with any denture adjustments that you may need done. Thanks to our in-house lab, we can make adjustments quickly and at great convenience to our patients.
