How do I know if I need a partial or full dentures?

Computer design of custom dentures.

A partial denture is used to replace a few missing teeth. A full denture replaces all the teeth on maxillary, top, or mandibular, bottom, and arch. Check to see if your dentist offers digital complete dentures, which are made with advanced computer technology, uses better materials, has a more accurate fit and thus requires fewer check ups. Dentures can also restore facial muscle tone so you can look younger and feel great!
