A denture is a removable prosthesis that replaces an entire arch of missing teeth. You may have both an upper and lower denture or one or the other. A partial is a removable prosthesis that replaces one or more missing teeth and uses the remaining teeth to stabilize the appliance. A denture is made entirely of acrylic while a partial is typically composed of a metal framework and acrylic. Dr. Sikora and Dr. Babb will work with you to determine which prosthesis best suits your needs. Both dentures and partial dentures require a series of appointments to fabricate the most functional appliance.
