Do you have some missing teeth in certain areas in your mouth?
If you have an area in your mouth that is mostly, but not entirely missing teeth, then partial dentures might be the perfect solution.
What are partial dentures?
Partials, or partial dentures are an option if you have some teeth remaining in the part of the mouth that requires a denture. These dentures not only fill in the gaps left by the absence of teeth, but also prevent other teeth from shifting.
Partial dentures can make a big impact on your smile.
There are several steps involved in making partial dentures, and the entire process takes a few weeks to complete.
- Every single aspect of your jaw needs to be measured and an impression can be made.
- Faux dentures that are the exact shape of the mold will be constructed based on the impressions so that you can try them out for comfort and fit.
- Once it’s confirmed that the mold fits perfectly or it’s fine tuned until it does, permanent dentures will be constructed from the mold.
We can design partial dentures depending on your needs. They attach to natural teeth with precision attachments, which are generally preferable to clasps. In some cases, crowns are also recommended to aid the fitting of the partials.
Partial dentures can be a pretty easy solution for people who want a removable option that improves their smile. If you’re interested in exploring this option, please contact us.
