Bridge the gap with partial dentures
If you’re missing one or several teeth, a partial denture can be the perfect solution for restoring your confidence. Partial dentures are removable, they look natural, and they fit seamlessly in with your existing teeth. Not only can partial dentures restore the look of your smile, but they can also help restore the form and function of your jaw. When you’re missing teeth, your bite pressure shifts significantly, as your denture specialist will tell you. Over time, your other teeth can start to shift to compensate, which can cause problems down the road. With partial dentures, you have an option for an easy and relatively inexpensive way to make you look and feel great.
How do you know if partial dentures are right for you? How much will they cost? How long will they last? We have the answers to all your questions and more! We’re happy to help with a free consultation to see if partial dentures are the right choice for you. Talk to a denture specialist and learn more.
Each partial denture is different. The cost varies greatly on the type of partial denture that’s right for you. The best way to get an idea of the price is to call us and book a free, no-obligation consultation.
A removable or partial denture is an option for patients missing some or many teeth, and a bridge isn’t an option for them. This can be due to lacking the necessary teeth to support a bridge or the cost of a bridge. A partial denture includes artificial teeth attached to a base that matches your gums.
A removable partial denture works by filling gaps from missing teeth with replacement teeth attached to a pink plastic base. A metal framework connects this to hold the denture in place in the mouth.
The fit and function of partial dentures might feel awkward at first.
To make eating with dentures easier, cut your food into small bites as you build confidence. Eventually, you can start adding different foods to your diet, although particularly tough, sticky, or chewy foods could still be a challenge. Once adjusted to their new dentures, most patients have few problems with their fit or function.
The life of your partial denture depends on how they fit and how healthy your remaining teeth are. Denture teeth are prone to wearing down and staining faster than natural teeth. The tissues in your mouth may also change over time, resulting in an improper fit and the need to replace or reline your existing partial denture.
