Partial dentures can replace a few lost teeth but not a whole upper or lower set. You must have some healthy teeth in the upper and lower areas of your mouth to acquire partial dentures. Partial dentures can also improve the wearer's chewing and speaking abilities. Partial dentures can also help to keep the remaining teeth in your mouth in place, which might otherwise shift over time. Smile Plus Dentistry offers partial dentures to assist our patients in reclaiming their smiles and dental function.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures may be a wonderful option for dental patients who still have numerous strong and healthy teeth. They are composed of a metal framework that holds the replacement teeth in place and is maintained in place by the remaining natural teeth. They must be removed before going to bed and soaked overnight in a denture cleaning solution.
Why Would Someone Require Partial Dentures?
If you've lost several teeth on the top or bottom of your jaw, you might benefit from partial dentures. Some of the variables that contribute to tooth loss are as follows:
- Severe tooth decay
- Periodontal disease
- A facial or jaw injury
- Poor dental care and natural aging
How Are Partial Dentures Made?
When you come in for your first appointment, we will take digital imprints and x-rays of your teeth and mouth as a whole. We utilize them as a guide while making dentures. We will send this information to a dental laboratory, where the dentures will be made in a few weeks. After that, we'll put them in your mouth and do a biting test to ensure they're a good fit.
Benefits of Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are cheaper than full dentures and are used to replace one or more teeth. They can quickly restore the beauty of your mouth and fill in the gaps in your smile. You might even be a candidate for same-day dentures, which means you won't have to wait for your dentures to be put on for a long period.
Partial dentures may also aid in the preservation of the health of your natural teeth. They can prevent the remaining teeth from shifting and weakening, as well as preventing one side of the mouth from being overused, which can lead to wear and injury.
