When you have lost several of your natural teeth, and this leaves behind multiple gaps across your smile, you need a prosthetic. A bridge could provide too little support, and a full denture may not be necessary. But in complicated cases of tooth loss, our team could help with a partial set of dentures, custom-made for your smile.
The Impact of Your Lost Teeth
Missing teeth in the form of multiple gaps across your smile could impact how you eat, limiting your email options. Speaking clearly could be a problem too, and you may feel embarrassed about your appearance. As teeth shift due to the gaps, misalignment could develop that harms your oral health and also leads to further changes to your smile’s appearance. With a partial, our team can provide a denture that fills these gaps and preserves the alignment and balance of your smile, so you can eat your favorite foods, smile with confidence, and enjoy good oral health.
Creating a Custom Solution
Every smile needs a custom set of dentures to ensure proper balance and of course, a lifelike appearance. To get started, our team will need to take detailed digital images of the smile from multiple angles. Our team uses these images in a lab setting to design and fabricate the custom prosthetic, so you have tooth replacement that looks natural and fits comfortably. The prosthetic will consist of lifelike replacement teeth made from ceramic, which can withstand bite forces and also be shaded to blend with the remaining natural teeth. We set these in an acrylic base, which mimics the appearance of gum tissues.
Securing Your Partial Prosthetic
When your partial denture is ready, metal clasps will be used to connect to natural teeth and keep your denture firmly in place. You will need to soak and clean it periodically, and on average each prosthetic will last about 5 to 10 years. For a longer-lasting and fixed option, we could support them with dental implants, so you have new teeth that look and function like regular ones, and can last for decades in some cases. If you have any questions about tooth loss, whether preventing it or addressing it, then contact our team today. We want to help restore proper function, health, and beauty to your smile again with a custom prosthetic, so you can enjoy a better quality of life!
