For patients missing several teeth, partials are another option. These are removable appliances. A partial replaces only the missing teeth and attaches to the remaining healthy teeth.
Dentures are a restorative option when all of the teeth are missing. Dentures are removable appliances. When in place, they look natural and help support the face, lips and smile line. Sometimes, especially with lower dentures, patients may elect to have implants placed to help hold their dentures in place.
