Partial dentures are an effective, natural-looking way to fill tooth gaps and prevent misaligned teeth from causing future dental problems.
Partial dentures are used in cases where patients are missing multiple teeth and implants are not an option. A partial denture consists of acrylic teeth and pink gum-colored plastic attached to a metal framework. This framework uses healthy anchor teeth to hold the denture in place.
- Partial dentures are as durable as their traditional counterparts, but the patient’s teeth and bones need to be strong enough to support and anchor this type of denture.
- Partial dentures are often removed at night to give the supporting teeth and bones a break.
- Dentures prevent natural teeth from shifting, support the lips and cheeks, and stabilize the bite.
- Garden Home Dental also offers traditional dentures for people who are missing most teeth.
