What are dentures?
Dentures are removable dental appliances used to replace missing teeth. Created from molds and measurements of your mouth, dentures are made from prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored or pink base that fits snugly over your gums. Our dental team, led by our caring dentist, Dr. Saigh, strives to provide high-quality dentures in Iron River, Michigan, so no one will ever know you are missing teeth. There are two main types of dentures that we offer at Saigh Family Dental, full dentures and partial dentures.
What is the difference between full and partial dentures?
Full dentures are what most people think of when they picture dentures. Full dentures replace all of the teeth in either your upper dental arch or lower dental arch, or both. A full denture is shaped like a horseshoe and rests entirely upon your gums. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth still remain in your smile and help complete a smile when multiple teeth are missing. Partial dentures can either be supported by a thin metal framework or by mini dental implants. Dr. Saigh will help you determine what is best for your smile after a thorough consultation.
