What are Dentures?
A denture is an alternate option for the lost teeth and the surrounding tissue, which gives a natural and aesthetic appearance. There are partial and complete dentures used based on the patient's condition if he has lost some teeth or all the teeth.
These dentures are custom made so that it fits accurately to your mouth and compliments your existing teeth. They are generally made of hard resin, and in the past, porcelain was used as a prime material. The material used is fragile in nature and can wear out or can be chipped off easily, so extra care has to be given to them.
At first, the dentist will take impressions and measurements, using which they will create denture models. Then it is checked whether the model will fit or not during the denture fittings. If it is a fit, then the model will be sent to the laboratory to manufacture the dentures. Usually, full dentures are fitted after removing all teeth (full-mouth extraction) or reshaped.

What are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are generally used for patients who have lost 2 or 3 teeth. The strength of the surrounding natural teeth also plays a significant role in deciding whether the patient is suitable for dentures or dental bridges. If they are not strong enough, partial dentures are preferred.
The part of the gum line on which the partial dentures sit is fitted on it and is fastened to the nearby natural teeth, which will help the teeth from falling out of place. These dentures can easily be taken out and cleaned time by time.
Partial Denture Procedure
Similar to a full denture procedure, the dentist will take your dental impressions and measurements. The dental laboratory that manufactures the partial denture will send you a denture by the next sitting. The dentist will check the dentures' fittings to ensure that the shape, color, and alignment are right. If it's correct, the denture will be cast in the specific area where the teeth are damaged or missing.
