Dentures & Partials in Charleston and Williamson, WV

A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. They may have an open or closed palate, and often require dental adhesive to stay in place. Dentures can be effective for some patients; however, many find they miss the security of having a more solid biting foundation.

A partial denture is an appliance that consists of multiple teeth that may not all be in a row. Partials generally fit in to work with existing teeth, and partials are normally secured with clips or brackets. Unlike a bridge, a partial is designed to be removable. Partial dentures may also work well for some patients who have lost teeth recently and are adjusting to eating and chewing.
