How do removable dentures work?
Removable partial dentures are used to treat partial tooth loss, i.e. when a patient still has some healthy gum tissue and teeth remaining. During a consultation at our Buford office, your dentist will examine your mouth to determine whether removable dentures are the best and most effective tooth replacement strategy for you
Partial dentures, like almost all dental restorations, are custom-made to fit your mouth. This means that we will first need to take impressions of your teeth and gums to find the exact measurements. Partial dentures usually consist of a resin base (made to resemble gum tissue) which contains a set of false teeth. The oral prosthetic is then attached to healthy neighboring teeth using clasps or attachments to hold it in place, especially when biting or speaking.
What are the benefits of removable partial dentures?
There are many pros to getting removable dentures. Some of the benefits include:
- A less invasive dental procedure where you can achieve a full smile again
- A budget-friendly prosthetic that is often less expensive than other options
- Having a full set of teeth that make it easier to chew, bite, and speak
- Feeling more confident in your appearance, especially when smiling
- Easy to adapt to (most patients get used to their partial dentures within 1-2 weeks of constant wear and use)
- They fill gaps between teeth to prevent natural teeth from shifting
