If you have a few missing teeth, a partial denture may be the right replacement option for you. Missing teeth present challenges like making chewing or speaking more difficult, and causing your face to appear less structured. Removable partial dentures can improve your daily life by mitigating to eliminating these challenges. They can also help prevent your healthy teeth from shifting into the gaps your missing teeth left.
Partials usually consist of the replacement teeth set in an acrylic base (matching the color of your gums) that is attached to a metal frame. The frame also consists of clasps that hold the partial in place and attach to your natural teeth. To improve the fit, your dentist may recommend placing crowns on the natural teeth that the partial will be attached to.
If you have any missing teeth, a partial denture could be a great fit for you! We encourage you to schedule a free consult to go over your options.
