Partial dentures are removable prosthesis patients wear when they have one or more missing teeth in their mouth. They have stability by clasping or attaching to the existing teeth they have in the mouth. They have more stability that complete dentures. Because they are attaching to teeth, the teeth must be in good condition- no cavities and no periodontal disease.
Partial Dentures can be made together or one arch at a time. With our in office lab- you can pick the color and style of teeth you like. over time, the jaw bone changes, or teeth that they are clasping onto become loose. At that point, new dentures may need to be made and or treatment to the teeth that are being clasped onto may need to be treated.
