What Are Partial Dentures?
When you hear the word “denture,” you may automatically think of a prosthetic that is designed to replace either all of the upper or all of the lower teeth. That is a complete, or full, denture. A partial denture is similar in that it is composed of artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored base. However, a partial denture fits in around the remaining natural teeth, sort of like a puzzle piece that goes exactly where it is needed. Small metal attachments help a partial denture to stay in place.
How Do They Work?
If you are interested in receiving partial dentures, visit us for a consultation. After we take a look at your teeth and determine whether partial dentures are right for you, we will perform any necessary preliminary procedures, such as extractions or periodontal therapy. Then, we will take impressions of your mouth and use those as the basis for designing your partial denture. A dental laboratory will fabricate your prosthetic.
Indications for Partial Dentures
You may benefit from partial dentures if you have lost multiple teeth throughout a dental arch, even if your missing teeth are not all adjacent to one another. You might also be a candidate for partial dentures if you still have most of your natural teeth but they will soon be extracted due to decay, gum disease, or other unfortunate circumstances. Red gums, loose teeth, and constant toothaches are all indications that tooth replacement may be necessary for you.
Benefits of Partial Dentures
Some of the most outstanding benefits of partial dentures include:
- They are cost-effective
- They can restore your ability to eat most foods
- They can look very pleasing
- They have the potential to last for several years
- They may boost your confidence and improve your overall quality of life
- They are easy to care for
How Much Do They Cost?
Compared to implant-supported tooth replacement, traditional partial dentures are relatively low-cost. Their price depends on how many teeth you need to have replaced and the materials used to make the denture. Our team will give you an estimate during your consultation. In most cases, dental insurance is willing to cover roughly half the cost of partial dentures. We can also help you to apply for low-interest financing if necessary.
