Knoxville and Maryville, TN
For patients with missing teeth, a partial denture may be a viable option for tooth replacement. Even one single missing tooth can decrease your chewing abilities, cause an uncomfortable bite, and lead to temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD). Plus, if you are missing a front tooth, you may feel embarrassed about your smile. To prevent additional damage to your oral health, replace missing teeth as soon as possible. Learn how the Maryville cosmetic dentists at Crestview Dental Care can replace your lost teeth and restore your smile with a partial denture.
What is a partial denture?
Partial dentures are made of an acrylic material that blends in naturally with your gums and teeth. Sometimes, there is a metal substructure added to provide stability and support. Prosthetic teeth are permanently attached to the partial and serve as tooth replacements for your missing teeth. Small clasps help hold the partial in place so that you do not have to bother with denture adhesives.
We work with metal-free partials. Metal-free partials are ideal for patients with a metal allergy, or for those concerned about the metal being visible when they speak or smile.
A partial denture is removable, just like a full set of custom dentures. You always should remove your partial before going to sleep, and make sure to clean it on a daily basis. A partial can replace multiple lost teeth as long as those missing teeth were on the same dental arch. Those teeth do not have to be adjacent to one another in the mouth, making a partial denture a more versatile method of tooth replacement than a dental bridge.
Why choose a partial denture?
When fabricated and placed by an experienced dentist like the ones on staff at Crestview Dental Care, a partial denture fills those gaps in your smile, eliminating a source of potential embarrassment. You also regain more of your chewing ability, expanding your food choice, and making it easier to receive the nutrition you need.
The benefits of replacing your missing teeth with a metal-free partial denture, including:
- Improved chewing ability
- Results that look natural
- Biocompatible, meaning it contains no metal or harmful substances
- Stabilizes the bite
- Easy to remove when needed
How can I get started?
To begin the process for a partial denture, consider a consultation with us at Crestview Dental Care. The dentist will determine exactly how your partial should be made, and we will make impressions of your teeth and bite to send to our premiere dental lab for your partial denture to be custom-made. After a couple of weeks, your partial will be ready for you to pick up, and the dentist will ensure your partial denture has the correct fit.
