Dentures are made to replace all or some missing or unrestorable teeth. They come in all
shapes and sizes including partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used when
some natural teeth remain while full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing.
Both are custom fitted and, if cared for properly, will appear natural. Dentures can help
strengthen facial muscles and aid in chewing as well as improve your speech. If you are
missing some of your teeth, a partial denture is the solution you are looking for.
~ Partial Denture ~
If you are missing only a few teeth scattered over either arch (upper or lower teeth), or even
if you have a minimum of two teeth on both sides of the arch, then you can most inexpensively
replace the missing teeth with a removable partial denture.
The number of teeth remaining, the position and the stability of the teeth are only a few of the
factors that help to determine what style or type of partial denture would be best for you.
Partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic
bases, which are connected by metal framework. They attach to your natural teeth with metal
clasps to hold the denture in place in your mouth.
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
Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other
teeth from changing position. Teeth that are out of position can damage tissues in the mouth.
As a result, you run the risk of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to
the loss of additional teeth. Partial dentures improve the overall health of your mouth.
