Is a Partial Denture Right for You?
Partial dentures are an excellent solution to bridge the gap of missing teeth. This type of tooth replacement is designed for patients who still have healthy existing teeth to attach the denture in place. Partial dentures can be made from a plastic base that secures the teeth to the gums or a metal framework that anchors the dentures to your natural teeth. At Green Dental of Alexandria, we have an experienced team of restorative dentists who can help you determine which partial denture option is best for you.
Partial dentures offer significant benefits towards your smile aesthetics, your everyday function and your oral health. Partials can enhance and balance the appearance of your smile as well as improve your speech and chewing function. Replacing your missing teeth with a partial can also protect your dental health. Partials prevent your natural teeth from shifting into the empty space of missing teeth. Shifting teeth can disrupt your bite alignment and create a crooked smile that is more difficult to keep clean. For a beautiful and healthy smile, consider partial dentures sooner rather than later!
Partials can be made of different materials, including acrylic resin or metal. We will carefully explain the benefits of each according to your unique needs and preferences. Your partial can be anchored onto your natural teeth using attachments or clasps. It may be necessary to have crowns placed on your attachment teeth to improve the fit of your partial. You can trust our Alexandria dental team to work hard to ensure your partial dentures offer optimal comfort and aesthetics. It is important to us that you walk away completely satisfied in your new smile. Call today to schedule your partial denture consult.
