What are dentures or partial dentures?
Dentures are removable sets of prosthetic teeth that snap onto your existing gums. While many stay in place with adhesive, some require a dental implant for an anchor.
Full dentures are used when all of your teeth are missing on either the top, bottom, or both. If you still have remaining teeth in good condition, partial dentures may be the right solution for your smile. Your dentist in San Mateo will discuss your options with you and, together, you’ll come up with the best plan for your unique smile.
