Services provided by Longview area dentist include the fabrication of partial dentures
When patients are in a situation where they are faced with tooth loss, they have a few different options they can consider for replacement. Dr. Clint Bruyere of Longview offers services including full and partial dentures. Partial dentures are common as they are used when one or more teeth are lost within the dental arch. They are much more affordable than dental bridges and dental implants, making them the first choice for patients seeking economical solutions for replacement.
How partial dentures work
Partial dentures are made with a metal framework that allows it to snap into place within the dental arch, using the existing teeth for support. They use false teeth that are secured to the denture that slide into place exactly where they are needed. These teeth are fabricated to look just like the rest of the natural teeth so that they blend in beautifully. Partial dentures are almost like a retainer used after orthodontic work, but are more discreetly in place. May patients love the ability to easily remove their partial denture for cleaning and care.
Who is a candidate for partial dentures?
Partial dentures are for everyone. Unlike other alternatives such as dental implants which require significant bone structure for success, partial dentures can be used for any patient who needs to replace one or more teeth within a dental arch. Patients who need to replace most of their teeth in the dental arch may still consider the advantages of extraction of the remaining teeth and the use of a full denture. During a consultation appointment and initial examination, patients can discuss this option as well as an alternative.
