Partial dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth. In some cases, they can be used when a dental bridge or dental implants are not practical options. Dental bridges are used to replace a single tooth or a row of missing teeth. Dental implants are great for replacing missing teeth, but they require that your jawbone be dense enough to support the implant. If your missing teeth are scattered throughout your smile, or if your jawbone is not dense enough for implants, partial dentures may be for you.
Partial dentures can provide the aesthetic appearance of your natural teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile. Partial dentures can also help keep your remaining teeth in their proper positions, and they can restore your ability to chew and speak properly. Partial dentures use a wire frame that is shaped to your dental arch and used to hold your artificial teeth in place. Then, our dentists cover the wire and base of the teeth with a gum-colored resin. In most cases, partial dentures are held in place by clasping on to a few of your natural teeth.
At our practice, we not only replace your missing teeth but also ensure that your artificial teeth are customized to resemble your natural teeth. We strive to make your restorations as natural-looking as possible because we want you to always be comfortable and happy with your smile. We welcome you to call or visit our practice with any questions. We are always happy to help!
