Standard Full Dentures
Standard full dentures are dentures that comprise a full set of upper and lower teeth. This type of denture uses suction to stay in place. In some cases, denture adhesive is required to secure the dentures to the gums.
Partial dentures are dentures that replace only a limited number of teeth, not an entire set. Partial dentures are a single piece fitting that is supported by the remaining teeth and gums. They are much more secure than standard full dentures and denture adhesive is usually not required.
