What is a Partial Denture

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Office

Synthetic dentition fills in the gaps. Frequently, they have clasps that attach to the final row of teeth. The prosthesis will stay in position as you go about your day if you do this. It is possible to make precise attachments for added stability and support. Depending on which teeth are missing, partial dentures can be made for just the front or only the back teeth.

How are Missing Teeth Replaced?

How many teeth you have lost and where in your mouth they are positioned can determine this. The restoration of missing teeth will enhance your appearance. Another explanation is that the teeth on either side of the gap left by a missing tooth may experience more stress. A gap may also be an indication that your bite is affected since the teeth next to it may lean in that direction and change how the upper and lower teeth bite together. As a result, food may get jammed into the opening, causing gum disease and tooth damage.

Main Approaches to Tooth Replacement

The three basic methods for replacing teeth are as follows. Utilizing a partial denture, which is a removable false tooth, is the first option. The other features a bridge. The bridge can often be applied when teeth are lost in different areas in your mouth. Another technique makes use of dental implants. Here, an artificial root that has been inserted into the jawbone is covered with a crown or bridge.
