Longview area dentist describes partial dentures
Dr. Clint Bruyere and his team in Longview work with patients in the community to help them find the best solutions to their dental concerns. When tooth loss has occurred, it is important to speak to a dental professional about the best ways to restore the functionality and beauty of the smile. When extracted or lost, there are three primary methods of replacement: dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures. Today we will talk about partial dentures.
What is a partial denture?
A partial denture is a replacement solution for patients who are missing one or more teeth within a dental arch. The partial denture is an appliance made from acrylic with a metal framework that wraps around existing teeth to anchor it in place.
What are the advantages of partial dentures?
There are several benefits of partial dentures that patients take into consideration when determining if they are right for them. These include:
- Easy removal for care and cleaning
- Beautiful appearance for a natural look
- Discreet yet effective in replacing missing teeth
- Affordable and often covered by dental insurance policies
- Comfortable for patients to wear
- Easy adjustments at the dental office when changes to the mouth occur
What are alternatives to partial dentures?
Partial dentures are not for everyone. There is no “one size fits all” option that meets the needs of every patient. This is why our practice also offers dental bridges and dental implants, which may be better solutions for some of our patients.
