What’s The Difference Between Full Dentures and Partial Dentures?

What are Traditional Removable Dentures?

Traditional removable dentures are custom-made to replace missing teeth and the surrounding gum tissue. They consist of artificial teeth attached to an acrylic base, which is designed to fit your mouth. Dentures can be either complete (full), replacing all teeth in an arch, or partial, replacing a few missing teeth.

At Today’s Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art digital technology that sometimes allows us to take digital impressions of your mouth that are highly accurate and help us create the most comfortable fit possible.

What Are The Benefits 
Of Traditional Removable Dentures?

Far too many people are living with painful, terminal teeth. Removing diseased teeth and replacing them with dentures has many benefits including:

Less pain from diseased teeth and gums
Easier to eat compared to eating with loose and painful teeth
Easy to clean
Treating gum disease in addition to switching to dentures reduces your risk of other health issues that have been linked to gum disease including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and more.

Frequently Asked Questions 
About Dentures

General Info

Are dentures permanent?

Dentures are not permanent and need to be replaced every 5-8 years. However, with proper care, they can last longer.

Do people get dentures before 30?

While less common, it's possible for individuals under 30 to get dentures due to trauma, severe tooth decay, or certain health conditions.

Dentures VS veneers?

Dentures are a removable appliance replacing missing teeth, while veneers are thin, custom-made shells covering the front surface of teeth to improve appearance. Veneers must be placed on healthy teeth, whereas dentures replace terminal teeth.

Are there dentures you can sleep in?

While it's possible to sleep in dentures, it's generally recommended to remove them at night to allow gums to rest and promote oral health.

How are dentures made?

Dentures are made from impressions or scan of your mouth, which are sent to a dental laboratory where the dentures are custom-made.

Can dentures look like real teeth?

Yes, modern dentures can look very much like natural teeth and can be customised to match the shape and colour of your existing teeth.

Can you eat with dentures?

Yes, you can eat with dentures, although it may take time to adjust to eating certain foods. It's recommended to start with soft foods and gradually introduce harder foods. Full dentures only have roughly 20% of the bite force (chewing ability) compared to healthy natural teeth. However dentures supported by dental implants can increase the bite force to 80% of what natural teeth can do.

Which dentures are most comfortable?

Comfort is subjective and can vary from person to person. However, many people find flexible dentures to be the most comfortable removable denture due to their adaptability to the mouth's shape. Typically, patients with implant supported dentures find them the most comfortable because the dental implants prevent further bone loss in the jaw bone, which allows the denture to fit more comfortably over the years.

How do dentures stay in place?

Dentures stay in place through natural suction, the close fit against the gums and jawbone, and in some cases, with the help of denture adhesive.

Will dentures prevent bone loss?

No, dentures do not prevent bone loss. In fact, over time, the absence of natural teeth roots can lead to further bone loss. The only type of dentures that can prevent bone loss are implant supported dentures such as Snap-In Dentures and All-On-X.

How long do dentures last?

With proper care, dentures can last between 5 to 8 years. However, they will need to be relined or remade due to normal wear or changes in the shape of your mouth.

Do dentures have to be kept in water?

When not in use, dentures should be soaked in water or a denture cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out and losing their shape.


Can you get same day dentures?

Yes, same-day dentures can be provided after tooth extraction. However these are temporary, as the gums swell after extractions, and the denture will need to be refitted when the gums return to their normal size.

Can dentures be permanently glued in?

Permanent dentures, also known as fixed dentures or dental implants, can be secured in place. However, traditional dentures are removable and should not be glued in.

Can you get dentures if you have implants?

Yes, there are implant-supported dentures that attach to dental implants for increased stability.

Can dentures be reshaped?

Yes, dentures can be reshaped or adjusted by a dental professional to improve fit and comfort.

Can dentures be whitened?

Dentures are a different material compared to natural tooth enamel and cannot be whitened like natural teeth, but they can be professionally cleaned to remove stains.

Issues / Challenges

What is a denture reline?

A denture reline involves resurfacing the side of the denture that's in contact with soft tissues to improve fit.

Can dentures be too big for your mouth?

Yes, if dentures are not properly fitted, they may feel too big. A dental professional can adjust them for a better fit.

What to do if dentures are cutting into your gums?

If dentures are causing discomfort or cutting into your gums, see your dentist for an adjustment.

Can dentures be fitted to receding gums?

Yes, dentures can be fitted to receding gums, but they may need frequent adjustment due to ongoing gum and bone changes.

Are dentures uncomfortable?

New dentures may feel uncomfortable or awkward for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. If discomfort persists, consult your dentist for an adjustment.

Can dentures be repaired?

Yes, most types of damage to dentures can be repaired, often on the same day. However, it's important not to attempt to repair them yourself as this can cause further damage.

Can dentures get cavities?

No, dentures can't get cavities like natural teeth can. However, they can still build up stains and tartar, so it's important to clean them regularly.

Can dentures cause thrush?

Poorly fitted dentures, especially upper dentures, can increase the risk of oral thrush, a yeast infection in the mouth.

Can dentures cause headaches?

If dentures are improperly fitted, it can lead to a bad bite, which in turn can cause headaches or TMJ problems.

Will dentures change my face?

Yes, the shape of your face changes with dentures. Particularly over time as more of your jaw bone is lost, the face can change shape quite a lot. However implant-supported dentures can help to prevent changes to the shape of your face as the implants prevent further bone loss.

Can dentures cause dry mouth?

While dentures themselves don't cause dry mouth, the discomfort and anxiety of wearing new dentures can lead to temporary dry mouth symptoms.

What to do if dentures keep falling out?

If your dentures keep falling out, they may need adjusting or relining. It's best to consult your dentist for an appropriate solution.
