Partial dentures do not harm remaining natural teeth. A partial denture may prevent your natural teeth from shifting or drifting into the space left by the loss of a natural tooth. In fact, a partial denture may help maintain the position of your natural teeth by providing them with additional support.
Partials’ main function is to keep your dentition structure intact, which minimizes chewing problems and bone loss.
A partial denture may be tooth-supported or tooth and tissue-supported. There are significant differences between theses two types of dentures. We will discuss with you what would work best for achieving the best result.
All partials are designed to be removable and should be removed nightly to contribute to a healthy oral environment.
The greatest benefit that appeals to our patients is appearance. Most missing teeth are very noticeable and patients are often self-conscious of the fact they are missing teeth.
