Partial dentures have been a standard solution for people who have lost many teeth due to tooth loss or gum disease. They are also an option for people who have had their teeth pulled due to tooth decay or a dental emergency. This guide will provide tips and information on partial dentures and what to expect during and after the process.
What are partial dentures?
Partial dentures are removable prosthetic teeth that replace a single or several missing teeth. They are made of acrylic, porcelain, or metal and are bonded to the remaining teeth using a dental adhesive. They can be used to replace either single teeth or a few teeth. Partial dentures are typically not used for the bottom teeth due to difficulty fitting them correctly.
What are the benefits of partial dentures?
Partial dentures are a great way to replace missing teeth while maintaining the natural contours of your face. Partial dentures are made from acrylic and are more comfortable than metal alternatives. They are also more affordable than the metal alternatives and are often covered by insurance. Partial dentures can also be more easily adjusted than metal ones. They can be quickly removed and changed, and they can also be adjusted to fit your lifestyle. Partial dentures are also very durable. They are strong, and they can last up to 10 years. If you are interested in partial dentures, you should talk to your dentist about the available options.
What are the risks of partial dentures?
Partial dentures are a great way to save some money and still have a great smile. However, there are some risks associated with partial dentures. One chance is that the mouth may reject the partial denture. The other danger is that the partial denture may cause a problem with your teeth. Finding a dentist with experience working with partial dentures is essential to avoid these risks. Talking to your dentist about the risks and what can be done to prevent them is also necessary.
