With partial dentures, patients can relax and enjoy an economical solution to tooth loss.
What is a partial denture?
Patients who are missing one or more teeth may want to ask Dr. Cole Sutak about the benefits of the partial denture. A partial denture is a removable appliance made with a metal and acrylic framework that snaps into place within the dental arch. It places false teeth right where they are needed, filling the gaps and restoring function. The partial denture is easy to remove and keep clean and is often covered in part by dental insurance plans. Many patients will have a small out-of-pocket expense when it comes to obtaining their tooth replacement options.
How long do dentures last?
The longevity of partial dentures is similar to that of traditional full dentures. Partial dentures will easily last several years with proper care. They will need to be adjusted with time as patients experience natural bone loss of the jaw while using dentures to replace missing teeth. Alternatively, patients can ask about implant-retained dentures, which are used to replace all the teeth in the dental arch while using dental implants to provide a proper foundation and maintain natural bone. Patients should also bring their partial dentures to their routine dental examinations to have them adjusted as needed.
