Full dentures replace all teeth on the top and/or bottom arch. Traditionally, dentures are held in place with natural suction or denture adhesive on the ridges of the gums. Without teeth roots to stimulate jawbone tissue, the bone deteriorates and the topography of the gums changes. For this reason, dentures may need to be relined to accommodate the changing gums.
A partial denture is a custom fabricated dental appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth, receiving support and retention from underlying tissues and some or all the remaining teeth; it may be either permanently attached or removable.
