Term Definition
Dentures and Partial Dentures

Dentures are removable dental appliances use for replacing missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are made to closely resemble natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. Complete dentures are made when all of the teeth are missing and partial dentures are made when some of the natural teeth remain. Complete dentures can not only replace teeth but also add lost dimension to correct a "shrunken in" smile and lower face. Complete dentures can be supported by dental implants to create a snap in fit. A partial denture not only replaces teeth, it also prevents damage that occurs to other teeth through prevent of shifting. Some partial dentures can be made in conjunction with specially made crowns that create a very precise "button in" fit. Modern materials and Dr. Kelly’s meticulous care can produce amazing cosmetic results.
