Benefits of Using a Partial Denture to Keep Healthy Teeth in Place


Posted on 3/15/2020 by Barbara Ketchum
Benefits of Using a Partial Denture to Keep Healthy Teeth in PlaceMany people use bridges or partial dentures to help when there are missing teeth. It connects existing teeth to the new false teeth with metal clips. It can keep the mouth healthier as well as allow you to keep up with your normal routines.
 

Exactly How They Work

Our dentist will certainly make a set that will best suit each patient's needs. Removable partial dentures brace themselves on soft tissues as well as your remaining teeth. This makes having a thorough dental examination vital to figure out whether any kind of oral work is necessary before the fitting for these removable partial dentures occurs.
 
Partial dentures are normally made of a resin base where the artificial teeth are inserted into the mouth. Conventional, detachable, partial dentures are made to change one or even more missing teeth. The fit of the partial is specifically essential as it will influence the bite.
 

Pros of Removable Partial Dentures

This is a much less invasive procedure and also normally has a reduced expense than replacing teeth altogether. Removable partials are seen as a simple fix to add teeth onto if those are seen as necessary in the future. Often times it is difficult to eat and talk and have a set of partial dentures put in is seen as helping to provide comfort as they help to assist for eating and talking once again.

When you are missing teeth, it can be embarrassing, so to have that partial denture in there boosts your confidence and gives you that confidence once again that you can smile and no longer have those missing teeth to worry about. Additionally, they aid in securing the gums and the oral tissues and protect against the existing teeth from drifting into any spaces that might have been left by any missing teeth. 

Because when drifting teeth drift into other spaces, food particles can come to be trapped, which brings about microorganism growth as well as gum disease. A lot of patients have an easier time adjusting to detachable partial dentures as opposed to full dentures.

Additionally, you can reasonably expect that appropriate brushing as well as flossing, is required with detachable partial dentures as they do also have plaque build-up and can cause tooth decay just as do your natural teeth. To find out more, reach out to us. We are happy to answer questions or help you get comfortable with a new partial denture.
