Dentures are well known for being the most affordable solution for replacing entire arches of missing teeth. However, it is a lesser-known fact that dentures can also be used for partial tooth loss, to replace a set of missing teeth.
The partial dentures we, at Edgewater Dental, offer patients in Sugar Land, Texas, are made from high-quality materials and efficiently restore your oral functions while also protecting your overall dental health.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Just like traditional full-arch dentures, partial dentures (or partials) are removable dental appliances. They are made from an acrylic gum-colored base and a set of artificial teeth usually made from porcelain or ceramic that are fixed to a metal framework.
Partial dentures are false teeth that rest on your gums and replace missing teeth to restore the form and functionality of your mouth. They can be used in both the upper and lower jaw.
What Are the Benefits of Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures have multiple benefits, including the following:
- They are a very quick and affordable solution for replacing several missing teeth
- They restore oral functions like chewing and speaking
- They support your facial structure by filling the space left by the missing teeth
- They prevent bite problems and shifting of the adjacent teeth
- They prevent jawbone and soft tissue deterioration
