At DentalMed Associates, we prefer to avoid extracting teeth if possible. So, if you are missing many teeth, but still have some healthy ones remaining, we suggest partial dentures as a restoration option. These will allow you to use dentures while still keeping some of your natural teeth.
While full dentures are meant to be replacements for an entire arch of teeth, partial dentures will allow you to keep some of them while matching their color and shape. People won’t even be able to tell the difference!
While partial dentures are not a full set of artificial teeth like full dentures, the procedure is very similar. We will first check for any oral issues such as periodontal disease or decay in your remaining teeth. If you have any teeth that are beyond saving, we may need to extract them.
If everything checks out fine, we will create an impression of your mouth and remaining teeth. This will allow us to properly create a partial denture that comfortably fits in your mouth. When it’s time to place the partial denture, we’ll ask you to give feedback so we can make any necessary adjustments.
Partial dentures have many amazing benefits as a result of once again having a full set of teeth. Some of these benefits include:
Confidence to show off your smile
Being able to keep your healthy teeth
Going back to eating the foods you love
Less invasive procedure than dental implants
