If you are looking for a natural and effective solution to replace missing teeth, partial dentures might be right for you! Point McKay Dental is pleased to offer partial dentures so you can restore your smile to what it once was and say goodbye to the embarrassment of speaking and chewing with tooth loss.
If you are missing only a few teeth in certain areas of the mouth, and have one or more of your own natural teeth remaining, a removable partial denture may be considered. A partial denture replacement is made up of a gum colored plastic base connected to a metal framework. This framework clips onto the remaining natural teeth to hold the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are usually designed to fill in spaces between existing teeth. They are removable and can be custom-designed to cover an entire section of the mouth. The result looks very natural!
In some cases, a fixed bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, can also be considered as a treatment option when adjacent natural teeth are there to support the bridge. A dental “bridge” is considered permanent because it is cemented into place and is not removable. The advantage of the fixed partial denture is that it stays securely in place.
Yes, there are alternatives to dentures! Dental implants can now be used to support permanently cemented bridges, thereby eliminating the need for a denture. In the case of a poor fitting full denture, dental implants can also be used to create better support for the denture.
Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for an implant supported bridge or implant supported denture. If you would like to explore the potential for implants supported denture solutions, we would be happy to discuss this with you during your denture consultation.
If you are interested in an effective and aesthetically pleasing option for missing teeth, partial dentures might be right for you!
