Partial Dentures

A partial denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue.  They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

Partial dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Reasons for dentures:

  • Partial Denture - Loss of several teeth in an arch.
  • Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.

What does getting dentures involve?

The process of getting a partial denture normally requires only two appointments.  Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture.  At the final appointment, your dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.

You will be given care instructions for your new partial dentures.  Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of them.
