A very important part of maintaining a healthy smile is the replacement of missing teeth.When teeth are missing, the remaining ones change position and shift into the surrounding spaces. This can cause damage to the tissues in the mouth as well as create crooked teeth that are difficult to chew with and clean. The risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease becomes higher and can lead to the loss of adjacent teeth. A removable partial denture will fill in the spaces created by missing teeth and fill out your healthy smile.
A partial denture will also help you properly chew food, pronounce words more clearly and give your entire face a more youthful appearance. Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with precision attachments. These are very secure clasps that are nearly invisible. Crowns on your natural teeth can improve the fit of the denture and are usually required with the attachments. It takes an average of just four visits to complete a removable partial denture. These visits allow us to try the denture in your mouth during various stages of construction to ensure that each stage in completed correctly.
