Partial Denture

Partial Denture
A partial denture is a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth. It is held in place by your existing teeth. It is important that these teeth be healthy in order to support your partial; often they may need treatment prior to making the partial.

The replacement of missing teeth is an important part of maintaining a healthy smile. When teeth are missing, the remaining teeth can change position, drifting into the empty surrounding space. Teeth that are out of position can damage oral tissues. Cleaning thoroughly between crooked teeth may be difficult, increasing the risk of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease which can, in turn, lead to the loss of additional teeth.

A removable partial denture can fill the gap left by missing teeth and improve your smile. A partial denture can be made of acrylic resin, metal, or a combination of the two.

We strive to keep our patients up to date with new dental treatments or techniques that may benefit them. Therefore, we have created this site to provide you with information about important dental health issues and dental treatments that can improve oral hygiene and enhance your appearance.
