Partial dentures are a cross between full dentures and a dental bridge. They do not replace all of the teeth in your mouth, but they replace more than a dental bridge does. And unlike dental bridges, partial dentures are usually removable so you can clean them easily and give your gums a chance to rest. These dentures consist of artificial teeth sitting on top of a gum-colored base. They will have metal framework and clasps which help them to stay firmly in your mouth.
Missing teeth can not only alter the aesthetics of your smile, but they can make chewing and speaking more difficult. Additionally, the remaining teeth may shift into the empty spaces in your mouth. When you wear partial dentures, the appearance of your smile can be restored. These dentures also support your remaining teeth while improving their function. We invite you to call our office today if you have missing teeth that you want replaced with partial dentures.
