Fremont area dentist describes partial dentures
Patients who have experienced tooth loss are often unhappy with the negative impact it has on their smile, especially when the lost tooth is near the front of the mouth. It can make them self-conscious about their appearance when they smile, laugh, or talk with others. It can also affect their ability to speak and eat properly. Additionally, if left untreated, patients may notice their existing teeth begin to shift out of place, resulting in gaps and misalignment throughout the smile. To avoid this, it is essential that patients take the time to learn about the benefits of tooth replacement options at the dental office, including partial dentures.
Partial dentures are a great way for patients to replace one or more teeth within the dental arch. These restorations are custom-made for patients to fit into their smiles. They are made with metal and acrylic framework and snap in and out of the dental arch. They use false teeth called pontics connected to the frame to fill the gaps from missing teeth. Partial dentures are fabricated using impressions of the smile which are used in developing the framework needed for it to fit properly. Partial dentures are easily removable for cleaning and repair and can be adjusted as necessary. Patients are urged to bring their partial dentures to their dental appointments so our team has the chance to check the fit and make sure they are functioning properly. Replacement is done as needed.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team at StarBrite Dental are dedicated to helping patients choose the proper solutions for their smiles. While partial dentures are an affordable option for patients, others may be better suited for full dentures, dental bridges, or dental implants. All of these options are readily available in our practice. Using some of the latest materials and best technologies in dentistry today, patients can rest assured that their dentist provides the most appropriate solution.
