Partial Dentures are a great solution for adults with one or more missing teeth. They are a removable, natural looking solution for many people. There are lots of reasons to consider a partial denture. We’ll explore some of them in this article.

When You Need Partial Dentures

If an adult is missing one or more teeth in an arch, a partial denture can be a nice option to restore the missing teeth. When teeth are lost, the back teeth can tip forward and upset the bite relationship. When teeth are lost, the bone and soft tissue continue to shrink in that area which can affect the surrounding tech. The surrounding teeth can become more sensitive and possibly loose as a result.

How It Works

Partial dentures can restore the missing teeth. This is a removable appliance that can be made from acrylic and metal or nylon. The partial denture uses your existing teeth as anchors. This appliance also provides functional stability and adequate esthetics. This option is far less invasive and is usually less expensive than other options for replacing missing teeth. Although they require a bit of maintenance, they do an excellent job of restoring beauty and functionality.

To find out if partial dentures are right for you, schedule an appointment with a dental professional. Our team at Downtown Franklin Family Dentistry is happy to help you through this process. Give us a call at 615-595-6111 or visit our website to schedule an appointment today!
