This post has all your answers about partial dentures!
What Are Partial Dentures?
Although made of a combination of metal and acrylic, partial dentures are a natural-looking, removable appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth. Thereby, it enhances the form and function of your jaw as well.
The durable material makes them resistant to the pressures of chewing and speaking.
Some partial dentures are made solely of acrylic therefore, they lose some points on durability and structural strength. Dr. Todd Shatkin DDS at Aesthetic Associates Center will help you determine the right partial denture to suit your needs.
Why Do You Need It?
When you have missing teeth, the pressure of biting tends to shift in your mouth, as the uncompromised teeth may try to make up for the dental gap/s. This may cause both the soft tissues and supporting bone around your missing teeth to shrink.
It goes without saying this will result in compromised physical appearance and subsequent problems with other teeth.
A partial denture makes up for the missing teeth while ensuring that your jawbone, gums, and facial muscles are kept active. It prevents unnecessary shifting of bite pressure in your mouth while lending you the confidence to flash a beautiful smile.
4 Benefits of Getting Partial Dentures
Here are four amazing benefits of getting partial dentures.
- Improves Your Appearance
Partial dentures do not only replace your missing teeth and improve your smile but also enhance your overall facial appearance by bringing your jaw in a better form.
If missing teeth embarrass you in public, a partial denture may be the most realistic replacement that can boost your confidence.
- Makes Chewing Effortless
We know how frustrating it may be to chew with missing teeth, especially if most of your dental plate is empty.
Partial dentures can make chewing easier for you, ensuring that you swallow your food safely.
Here are a few helpful tips for eating and speaking with dentures!
- Treats Compromised Teeth
Missing teeth mean your remaining teeth moving in closer to fill the gaps. This may present you with the bite pressure-shifting problem as well as increase your risk of developing gum disease.
