If you are missing more than a few teeth – but not all of them – how can you wear a denture? Do you have to have your remaining teeth removed? Not at all! Partials are very similar to dentures in that they replace missing teeth, except that partial dentures are used when some healthy teeth remain in your mouth. In fact, partials are a bit like removable bridges. Unlike dentures, partials are attached to your remaining teeth with small clasps, though they do also rest on the gums. Dental adhesive can help keep them comfortable and secure and, just like dentures, partials should be removed for cleaning and soaking.
We are proud of how natural and attractive Meyer Family Dentistry partial dentures look and feel, but if you want the ultimate in function, and teeth that feel more like your own used to feel, talk to us about the option of implant-retained partials.
