Is It Better to Get a Partial Denture or Should I Get a Full Denture?

Posted on 1/11/2021 by Todd Jorgenson
Is It Better to Get a Partial Denture or Should I Get a Full Denture?If you are thinking about getting a denture to fill in gaps in your smile, and you still have some remaining teeth, you may be better off getting a partial denture instead of having all the teeth extracted and getting a full denture.

Why A Partial Denture May Work Out Better?


If you have some teeth remaining and know you will either need to get a partial denture or full denture, you will have to consider how your bite will be impacted by each of the restorations. If you get a partial denture, the other teeth, which are already in place, will make it possible for you to bite more normally. Therefore, with a partial denture, there is less of a change in biting - something that can cause gum damage or future infections. While a full denture does a good job of restoring your smile, you still must use a lot more force when you bite down if you do not have any of your natural teeth. However, when you have some of your teeth remaining, the force of your bite decreases, and the remaining teeth prevent the bone from shrinking or resorbing. Unfortunately, bone atrophy, or resorption, often leads to denture relines for full denture-wearers.

When Getting a Full Denture Is Better?


If your teeth cannot be saved, or they are severely damaged, naturally, getting a full denture will work out the best. However, you may still want to consider getting implants in the near future, as, again, wearing a denture causes jawbone atrophy. The placement of implants keeps this from happening, as it serves the same purpose as a tooth's natural root. Whether you get a partial denture or full denture, you can have implants placed, so you can either have a partial denture or fixed bridge added or an All-on-4 fixed denture installed.
