Understanding the purpose of dentures and partials

Restorative dentistry encompasses many different procedures designed to repair the smile. Drs. Edward and Dina Jackson in Hackensack, New Jersey, may recommend to patients with missing teeth the many benefits of dentures and partials. These are tooth replacement options that are readily available at our office. State Street Smiles is pleased to provide several types, including full, partial, and implant-supported dentures as artificial teeth that look and function better than the dentures of your grandparents’ generation.

What are dentures?


Drs. Edward and Dina Jackson of State Street Smiles describe dentures as dental prosthetics used to replace missing teeth in the mouth. Dentures are designed to be removable and can either partially or fully restore a person’s smile, depending on their individual needs.

  • Full dentures. Full dentures are typically recommended when all the natural teeth have been lost due to injury, disease, or decay.
  • Removable partial dentures. Partial dentures are often recommended if some of the patient’s original teeth remain intact but require reinforcement from additional artificial ones.
  • Implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures offer greater stability and security than traditional removable dentures. They are attached to implants that have been surgically placed in the jawbone, allowing them to stay securely in place even when speaking or eating.

What can I expect from quality dentures?

Good dentures should fit snugly against the gums, allowing for comfort during everyday tasks such as speaking or eating. They must also be made from durable materials that will not easily break or become damaged over time. With the proper care and maintenance, your dentures should last for several years. Our team at State Street Smiles will provide clear instructions on how to clean and care for your appliances properly.
