Full dentures are used if there are no natural teeth remaining in the mouth. A full denture covers more of the jaw than a partial denture and is held in place by a natural vacuum in the mouth and/or by adhesive products.
When you no longer have any natural teeth, full dentures are a great, traditional method to help restore the look and function of your smile. Although many patients are successful denture wearers, some may experience difficulties, such as poor stability and the decreased ability to chew. When this occurs, dental implants can be utilized to improve the stability and retention of dentures.
