Missing teeth are really cute on little kids but for adults, it can be really embarrassing. That’s not to mention that chewing your food can be difficult or even painful. Having missing teeth can also make the teeth around where the tooth was unstable and cause them to move. This leads to more complicated issues if not treated.
A partial denture is a removable appliance that is custom-made to fit your mouth and replace your missing teeth. At our Nevada, MO dental practice, we provide partial dentures for patients who are missing some of their teeth. Regardless of how many teeth you are missing, partial dentures are important because they help you keep your remaining teeth and mouth in proper form. Patients should wear their partials throughout the day, but should remove them at night. This gives your gum tissue a break, and also helps prevent fungal infections.
What’s The Process
If you and the doctor determine you need a partial, then one of the first things we will do is get an accurate impression of your teeth. This impression is then used to create the partial denture just for you. There may be some adjustments along the way in order for you to have a perfect fit. Our goal is to help you enhance your smile, your ability to chew your food and in some instances, improve your speech.
