Keep reading to learn more about dentures, partials, and the benefits they offer.

Partial Dentures in Charles Town

What are Dentures?

Dentures, also known as false teeth, are dental devices that are used to replace missing teeth. Dentures are prosthetic teeth held in place by the gums. They are often made from resin or acrylic.

What are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are a plate of false teeth with slips or clasps to help ensure dentures remain positioned correctly within the mouth. Partials have one or more false teeth.

The Different Types of Dentures

At Charles Town Smiles, patients can find a wide range of dentures, including immediate dentures, partial dentures, full dentures, fixed dentures, and overdentures. Below, we’ve gone into detail about each of the different types of dentures we can provide our valued patients with:

Immediate Dentures

These temporary dentures are the perfect placeholder for patients whose gums are healing after tooth removal.

Partial Dentures

This type of denture appliance can replace a singular tooth or multiple teeth; they provide comfort, strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal.

Full Dentures

Complete dentures like these are for patients with no teeth. Full dentures can be implant-supported, digital, or traditional. Your dentist can help you determine the best kind for you and your unique needs.

Fixed Dentures

Comprised of two to six dental implants placed within the mouth’s arches, fixed dentures are then attached to the implants. They are the most stable denture option.


Unlike a regular set of dentures, overdentures are attached to dental implants and click into place.

The Benefits of Complete & Partial Dentures

Complete and partial dentures alike offer patients a wide range of benefits. Dentures are dental devices that are designed to perform the functions of natural teeth while being comfortable for patients to wear. Not only can dentures restore your smile and renew your confidence, but they can also better your ability to chew and speak, eliminating any social awkwardness you may feel. Dentures are also removable tooth replacement options, making them easy to clean. The benefits of dentures include:

  • A cost-effective tooth replacement option
  • Help maintain the way you pronounce words
  • Help keep your smile natural-looking and beautiful
  • No more restrictions on what you can and can’t eat
  • No more sagging facial muscles that age you
  • A decreased rate of bone disintegration
  • Your chewing forces are evenly distributed to all teeth

The Disadvantages of Dentures

Different types of dentures will have different kinds of disadvantages. For example, the disadvantages of removable partial dentures include a break-in time to adjust to the device, can increase the buildup of plaque around the abutment teeth, trauma to the abutment teeth or gums from pressure or movement of the partial possible, may not function well as a fixed option for tooth replacement, and more. Ultimately, all dentures will wear down over time and need to be replaced, which many patients view as a disadvantage. Their repeated need for maintenance in the long term and the extensive number of procedures involved in getting them in the first place are also seen as disadvantages by some patients.

Is it Better to Get Partial Dentures or Complete Dentures?

Your dentist will be able to help you determine which type of dentures is best suited for you and your unique needs. If you’re trying to determine which type of dentures is best for you, our professional team can help. Things to consider include your overall oral health, the condition of your teeth, and your budget. If you have good oral health and are only missing a few teeth, partial dentures might be the best option. However, if you have advanced gum disease or multiple missing teeth, we recommend complete dentures. Whatever your oral health needs are, we are here to help.
