Partial dentures are custom-made oral appliances used to fill the gaps in your smile. Our dentists may recommend partial dentures if you are missing some, but not all, of your teeth. Partial dentures can help restore a natural-looking smile and make it easier to speak and chew. Additionally, they can also support your cheeks and lips to prevent your face from sagging, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Partial dentures usually include replacement teeth fixed to an acrylic base. They often include a thin framework or clasps that attach to your natural teeth to create a secure it. While your denture may feel awkward or uncomfortable for a few weeks, your mouth will adjust to it soon enough. Never attempt to force your denture into place by biting down, as this could bend or break the clasps and damage your teeth. Please follow all instruction for use and care of your partial denture that our dentists provide.
