Partial Dentures are a great potential option to replace areas of missing teeth. These dentures can be made entirely of acrylic or a combination of a metal base framework and acrylic. If you are missing multiple teeth on one arch, but still have some good supporting teeth remaining, this could be a great choice for you! Partial dentures are generally a better treatment option than complete dentures because of the use of existing teeth for better retention and function.
Benefits of a partial denture:
- Restoring your bite so that it is balanced and evenly distributed around your mouth
- Allows for comfortable and harmonious chewing on both sides of the mouth
- Restoring smile esthetic and speech
- Metal Free Option Available
Complete Dentures are necessary when you have no remaining teeth on one or both arches. Dentures are considered a prosthetic device and they are designed to look and function similar to natural teeth. These are typically made entirely out of acrylic and sometimes porcelain is used for the teeth.
