Partial dentures are a type of replacement teeth that are used when you are missing only a few of your teeth. They work by attaching replacement teeth to a gum-colored plastic base, which may also cover a metal frame. This base will have a clasp on either end that attaches the replacement teeth to your natural teeth and holds them in place. In some cases, our dentist may recommend using a crown on some of your natural teeth to help your denture fit more comfortably in your mouth.
If you are missing several teeth, partial dentures can benefit your smile for a variety of reasons, including:
- Making it easier to chew
- Restoring speech patterns that may have been changed by missing teeth
- Preventing natural teeth from shifting
- Supporting lips and cheeks to prevent your face from sagging
- Restoring the aesthetics of your smile by filling in gaps caused by missing teeth
When you receive partial dentures, our dentist will instruct you regarding how long you should wear your dentures on a daily basis, and in proper cleaning and care techniques. As you get used to your new replacement teeth, our dentist will check for any sore or irritated areas and provide any necessary adjustments so that you can receive maximum comfort. We welcome you to contact our office today for more information. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
