Restore Your Bite and Chewing Ability With Our Cast Partial Dentures
If you have missing teeth, a removable partial denture is one way to replace them.
Partial dentures have several benefits. For one thing, they can make it easier for you to chew food. They can also help you speak better if your speech has changed due to missing teeth. Removable partial dentures can support cheeks and lips so the face does not sag and make you look older.
A missing tooth is a serious matter. Teeth are made to work together. When you lose a tooth, the nearby teeth may tilt or drift into the empty space. The teeth in the opposite jaw may also shift up or down toward the space. This can affect your bite and place more stress on your teeth and jaw joints. It may be harder
to clean teeth that have shifted, which could lead to tooth decay and gum disease. That is why it is important to replace missing teeth.
Removable partial dentures usually have replacement teeth fixed to a plastic base that matches the color of your gums. The plastic base may cover a metal framework. Partial dentures often have some form of clasp that attaches to your natural teeth.
Our very own denture technicians at Kairos Dental Lab will custom design your partial dentures based on impressions and models taken of your mouth by our dentists. Our dentists will pay very close attention to all the details of your smile, matching your natural teeth, and making sure your smile is reproduced to the most natural color, shape and design possible. We will insure that your new partial dentures will look, fit and feel great.
Sometimes your dentist may also recommend crowns, or “caps,” on your natural teeth. Crowns may improve the way a removable partial denture fits your mouth. Ask your dentist which kind of removable partial denture is right for you.
