Partial Dentures in Nashville, TN
Partial dentures are an ideal option for replacing missing teeth. Partial dentures are designed to fit snugly into place, which helps you smile with confidence and enjoy eating normal foods. Partial dentures are also removable to help with cleaning.
Benefits of Partial Dentures
Each partial denture is custom-fitted based on your teeth replacement needs and anatomy to ensure the integrity of your remaining teeth are preserved. Missing teeth will place added stress to existing teeth and change the way you chew. Over the course of time, this can result in teeth shifting to fill in the empty space. Further, missing teeth will cause gum and bone loss. Think of your teeth as preserving gums and bones much like grass and trees prevent soil erosion.
Creating Your Partial Dentures
Being fitted for partial dentures involves acquiring a series of impressions that will be tailor-made to your mouth. A temporary model is then created for the initial fitting, which allows for further adjustments. The false teeth and gums will be color matched to your existing teeth to provide the most natural look possible. If necessary, future adjustments can be made as well.
Caring for Partial Dentures
Partial dentures should be removed and cleaned daily to keep them looking their best. Although dentures are made of synthetic materials, stains can occur, and food particles and bacteria will accumulate, so just as you have a daily cleaning regimen for your natural teeth, your partial dentures should be gently brushed and cleaned with a mild soap or denture cleaner every day.
Partial dentures offer a less-invasive option for replacing missing teeth and in most cases is less expensive than the alternative dental implants or bridges. If you would like to learn more about partial dentures in Nashville, schedule an appointment with our dental team today.
