Dentures FAQ

Dentures can be either complete or partial. At Loch Dental we offer both complete and partial denture options. Complete dentures are made for people who have lost all of their teeth. They can be given more support by placement of implants in the bone under the denture. Partial dentures are used to replace only a few teeth. They attach to nearby teeth. Denture problems still can occur, of course. But problems such as clicking, slipping, frequent gum irritation and odor may be signs that your dentures don’t fit well. They may need to be adjusted, relined or remade. You may be wondering what are the differences depending on the type of denture you would need.

What are Complete Dentures?

Complete Dentures are custom made for you, covering your entire jaw either upper or lower. This dentures option rests directly on the gum that covers the bone.

What are Partial Dentures?

Partial Dentures consist of metal framework with plastic teeth and gum areas. Partial dentures consist of metal framework that attaches to metal clasp and holds the denture in place. Partial dentures are removed easily for cleaning.
