Partial Dentures

 

Smile with Confidence

Partial dentures, also known as partial false teeth, are specifically designed to fill in spaces created by one or more missing teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw. With this appliance, you will no longer have a reason to feel self-conscious about missing teeth. Partials allow you to smile with full confidence.

A removable partial denture is commonly made of fake teeth fixed on a pink or gum-colored acrylic base, which is connected to a metal framework to ensure rigidity and integrity. Metal clasps are utilized to connect to your natural teeth so the partial stays in place. Partials offer a natural-looking solution to teeth replacement in multiple areas of the mouth.

Why would I need partials?

If you have lost one or more teeth due to an injury, serious tooth decay, or periodontal disease, it is incredibly important that you seek a replacement option for your missing teeth. There are many unwanted side effects and threats to your oral health that come along with missing teeth. When your teeth are missing, your jawbone beneath begins to deteriorate. Additionally, your remaining teeth may begin to move, which can give them a crooked appearance and can negatively impact your bite. Missing teeth also make simple tasks like smiling, eating, and having a conversation difficult, if not impossible. Partial dentures can help to restore the function of your smile and help maintain your oral health.

Am I a good candidate for partials?
