Best Answer

Full dentures are when all of the teeth are removed either from the upper or lower of the mouth. A full SET is when all of the teeth are removed from the mouth and a denture plate is made for both. Same as if only the upper or lower teeth were completely removed. Partials are dentures that are made for missing teeth (say the front) and are secured with a crown. All of the above need to be removed nightly and cleaned to keep them white and odor free. Some full dentures are formed to attach to the gum line solely while others are made to secure to the full upper mouth. The lower dentures only adhere to the lower gums. When the teeth are removed, they need time to heal (a few weeks to a month) before the new dentures can be placed. An impression is made of your mouth/gum line for the proper fitting.
