partial dentures cover only a section where the missing teeth are. A partial denture is a personalized, removable dental appliance that fills in the gaps left behind by multiple missing teeth. It has internal attachments. Partial dentures can be either fixed (FPD) or removable (RPD) and they are designed for patients who have several missing teeth dispersed along their mouth.
Complete dentures are used for patients with no teeth. Complete dentures can replace a full set of teeth on the upper or lower arch. Nowadays, there are a variety of natural-looking dentures for patients who need to replace missing teeth. Dentures are custom designed to fit your mouth. These appliances use suction to stay in place. They are made of a gum-colored plastic resin or acrylic base and either resin or porcelain replacement teeth. If you are missing all teeth, dentures may be your best option.
