Removable dentures represent temporary or definitive treatment of the patient. They are supposed to replace missing teeth and allow rehabilitation of the patient in functional, aesthetic and psychological terms. They represent replacements for missing teeth if the teeth can not be replaced by fixed bridges or dental implants. Removable dental replacements are usually a cheaper solution, so they are also approached for financial reasons. A typical situation where the missing teeth can not be replaced by a fixed bridge is the loss of the back teeth. This creates a gap that is not bordered on both sides by firm teeth.
Partial dentures can replace a number of missing teeth. Usually they are made of metal or lightweight, gum-colored resin, and artificial teeth. Your natural teeth will provide an anchor for your partial dentures and hold them in place.Since your partial denture will be part of your existing smile, we will closely match your denture teeth to your remaining natural teeth, so your smile looks seamless.Your partial denture relies on the health of your remaining teeth, so good oral hygiene is important, as with all dentistry.Since your body changes over time, you may find that your partial denture needs a periodic adjustment to keep it fitting properly.
