Complete or Full Denture
A removable prosthesis or appliance designed to replace all the missing teeth in the upper or the lower jaw. A denture is supported by the soft tissues in the mouth and, thus, allows for a normal appearance and aid in chewing.
Partial Denture or Removable Bridge
A removable partial denture (removable bridge) is a prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth that can be removed by the patient.
Implant Definition: A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. To learn more about implants, click here.
