Partials in Point Pleasant

A partial denture is an attractive solution for patients who have lost a few teeth, but surrounding healthy natural teeth remain. The natural look and easy removal allow you to smile with confidence while efficiently caring for your oral health. At our dental practice, we offer quality, durable partial options to guarantee your successful smile makeover.

What to Expect

Removable partial dentures are the most common for dentists to recommend for partial teeth restoration. Typically the replacement teeth are attached to a gum-colored plastic base. Some removable partial dentures can connect to a metal framework to better hold the denture in your mouth. Often a dental bridge substitutes one or more teeth with crowns on either side of the space and attaching artificial teeth to them. By filling the area, the partial denture prevents other teeth from moving out of position and creating a natural-looking smile.

Advantages of Partial Dentures

Partial dentures offer a variety of benefits in comparison to other cosmetic dental procedures. Advantages include:

  • Enhanced Appearance - partial dentures can assist with filling out your facial profile, giving you a healthier appearance.
  • Improved Chewing and Talking Ability - you can eat and talk with greater ease.
  • Longterm Use of the Appliance - with proper care your partial dentures can last for several years or a lifetime.

Proper Care

Patients are encouraged to properly care for their partial dentures the same way they would their natural teeth. Daily brushing removes bacteria and keeps your mouth and dentures clean. When not in use, it is most helpful to place your dentures in a container with water to prevent them from warping. If you use an adhesive to keep your dentures in place, be sure to use a product with the ADA seal to guarantee safety and effectiveness.

If you have any questions or concerns about your partial dentures, please contact your dentist immediately.
