Partial Dentures / Cosmetic Precision
Modern dentures have come a long way, so far in fact that most people can’t even tell you’re wearing them. If you lose teeth to malnutrition, bad oral hygiene or some form of trauma, a partial denture can fill the spaces of one or many missing teeth. Essentially, a partial is used to fill the spaces or gaps between existing teeth.
Types of Partial Dentures
There are two types of partials: removable & fixed. Expert Denture Clinic will help you decide which is best for you based on the health of your teeth surrounding the gap to be filled.
Removable – A removable partial denture is also known as a removable dental bridge. It fills the gap between two healthy teeth with replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored acrylic base. A removable is connected by a metal framework that helps keep them in place.
Fixed – A fixed partial is also called a dental implant bridge and is used to permanently attach artificial teeth directly to the jaw with dental implants.
Whether you decide on a fixed or removable, both offer several benefits.
- Prevent teeth from shifting in your mouth
- Ease the stress of your jaw
- Make it easier to speak and chew
- Maintain the shape of your face
