About Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are best utilized when a patient has several missing teeth but not the entire set of teeth on one or both jaws. When healthy teeth remain on either side of the gap created by a group of missing teeth, a partial denture can be used and supported by these remaining teeth. Essentially, partial dentures mimic full dentures but on a smaller scale. With partial dentures you will regain much of the functionality of the missing teeth allowing you to chew, speak, and smile much better than with missing teeth. You will certainly feel better about the way you look, and you can start to enjoy foods that you may have been avoiding due to missing teeth.
How Partial Dentures Work
Partial dentures are held in place by a variety of existing structures inside the mouth. Much like the full dentures that our Brooklyn, NY cosmetic dentistry practice provides for patients missing teeth, the natural arch of the gums and jaw securely hold the partial dentures. Partial dentures also utilize the strength of existing adjacent teeth to provide even more support. Dental bridges function in a similar manner, but are different than partial dentures.
Ideal Candidates for Partial Dentures
The best suited candidates for partial dentures are patients that are missing a few teeth and are in otherwise good dental health. They should also have realistic expectations about what partial dentures can achieve and should thoroughly understand what the treatment process consists of.
Some partial denture patients may also be great candidates for fixed partial dentures, which utilize dental implants to create a strong and secure hold for partial dentures. During your initial consultation with Dr. Eugene Stanislaus all of your options for replacement teeth will be considered and together you can maker the determination of whether fixed partial dentures would be a good option for your unique dental situation.
