There are 4 different type of structures in a sentence...
A sentence with just
one independent clause
"Judy laughed..."
A compound sentence contains at
least two independent clauses
"Judy laughed and Jimmy cried."
A complex sentence contains an
independent clause
and at least
one dependent clause
"Jimmy cried when Judy laughed."
A compound- complex sentence contains
two or more independent clauses
and at least
one dependent clauses
"Judy laughed and Jimmy cried when the clowns ran past their seats."

Or it can be the entire sentence.
They can be part of a sentence.

Clauses help you determine if you have a complete sentence or have a run off sentence
