What are dentures?

Dentures are an affordable, removable option we offer at Family Smile Center LLC to replace multiple missing teeth. A denture is a removable oral appliance that can be used to replace all of your teeth or a just a few missing teeth. Our dentist can offer two main types of dentures in Frederick, Maryland: partial dentures and complete dentures.

What is a partial denture?

A partial denture, sometimes simply referred to as a “partial,” is used to replace multiple missing teeth when some natural teeth still remain. In many cases, the partial denture includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the neighboring teeth for stability.

What is a complete denture?

A complete (full) denture is used to replace all of the teeth in an arch. This type of denture is shaped like a horseshoe and is composed of prosthetic teeth set into a gum-colored based. Based on your needs, we may recommend using a denture adhesive to provide additional security.
