If a patient is missing one or more teeth, they might be ideal for partial dentures. This treatment involves a removable appliance made of an acrylic and metal framework that fits securely within the patient’s dental arch. The device fits the false teeth just where they are needed, filling those unsightly gaps and restoring full dental function.
Plus, partial dentures are easy to maintain and remove if necessary, and they are partly covered by many dental insurance plans. Most patients may have a modest out-of-pocket expense concerning tooth restoration options.
Partial dentures have longevity similar to traditional full dentures. They can last for several years with proper care and maintenance. Partial dentures require adjustment over time because patients will experience natural jawbone loss as they use false teeth to replace missing teeth.
There are also implant-secured dentures that can be used to replace any tooth in a dental arch while providing the most-secure foundation and maintaining natural bone. Implants are a more extensive procedure that requires placing a dental post into the jawbone.
Afterward, a temporary crown is set in place as the dental post fuses with the jawbone. Then, after several weeks, the patient is fitted with a permanent crown to secure their partial denture. Adjustments to partial dentures can be made during a patient’s routine dental exams.
