What are partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are a detachable or removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. It assists in restoring the form and function of your jaw by replacing teeth with a dental appliance. Dental Partial dentures are made from a combination of metal and acrylic that gives them strength to handle your requirements for speaking and chewing.
When is partial dentures treatment recommended?
When your tooth or teeth are missing, the bite pressures in the mouth may shift. Other teeth may start to move to compensate for the “gap” in your bite, and you may experience shrinking of both the soft tissues and the supporting bone near your missing teeth. This over time can lead to a change in the physical appearance of your face and can also lead to subsequent issues with your other teeth. In such cases, our general dentists may recommend you a partial denture. It helps prevent further shifting of the other teeth in your mouth and restores your smile.
Partial dentures will not prevent bone loss that occurs when a tooth is no longer present. Continued bone loss may have implications for support on neighboring natural teeth. If meticulous oral hygiene is not followed, you may be at a higher risk of decay as plaque and bacteria can settle around the denture and clasps. Your dentist will examine your mouth and can discuss all the pros and cons.
