Using partial dentures for smile restoration
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
At Drs of Smiles, we know that replacing missing teeth is essential to maintaining a beautiful, fully-functional smile after tooth loss or extraction. We understand how missing teeth can negatively impact a smile, and cause long-term problems if left unaddressed. With the help of our team at Drs of Smiles, most patients in Mesa, AZ can improve their smile and restore its appearance and function with partial dentures.
What is a partial denture?
A partial denture is an oral appliance designed to snap into the dental arch and slide false teeth into the locations of the arch there they are needed. This oral appliance is made with a metal and acrylic framework and is custom-fabricated for a patient. The false tooth or teeth used in a partial denture is made to match the existing tooth in shape and size to ensure a natural look.
What are the benefits of a partial denture?
A partial denture has many advantages, as it is:
- Easy to care for
- Easy to adjust
- Covered by many insurance plans
Why choose a partial denture?
While there are other options available to patients for tooth replacement, including dental implants and dental bridges, partial dentures still remain a reliable and affordable option for many of our adult patients. Dental implants can be invasive and costly, while dental bridges can impact the surrounding teeth. A partial denture rests in the smile without affecting other teeth and provides a removal, affordable, and beautiful option for those on a budget. In addition, the front office team at Drs of Smiles can work with a patient’s dental insurance plan to determine if benefits can be used to reduce or completely eliminate the out-of-pocket expense for a partial denture.
