Partial denture - removable dental appliance that replaces some of the natural teeth.

Full denture - Removable dental appliance that replaces all of the natural teeth.

When a number of teeth are missing, there are various options available.

You may choose to have a denture. But over time, your gums will recede and the denture may not fit as well.

You could choose to have Implants to secure the denture.

One way is a small number of Implants with a bar and magnets to hold the denture another is a small number of Implants to which the denture is secured or a greater number of Implants onto which a set of teeth and permanently fitted.

Partial dentures can sometimes move as gums change shape.

Securing the denture to an existing tooth can be the solution.

A stud can be fixed to an adjacent tooth. The partial denture then 'clicks' onto this stud to secure it in place.
