Rebuild Your Smile With Partial Dentures

cleveland partial dentures

When you have multiple missing teeth, far too many for a bridge but not necessarily enough to warrant a full denture, then you may need a partial prosthetic. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about how we can rebuild the smile and offer a lifelike and durable dental prosthetic that also fits comfortably!

The Impacts of Missing Teeth

Losing multiple teeth across your smile could cause misalignment, as the remaining teeth drift from position. The resulting misalignment not only changes the appearance of your smile, but increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, this could strain the jaw joints and lead to painful disorders like TMD or even bruxism (teeth grinding). Problems eating and even speaking clearly could develop as well! Don’t let your quality of life suffer, talk to our team about a possible solution.

Creating a Custom Denture

Once we examine your smile we will assess the cause and extent of your tooth loss. We may treat underlying oral health issues, such as gum disease. We then extract any disease teeth and take detailed digital images. The images will be used to create a 3D impression, so we can design and craft the prosthetic in a lab setting. The partial denture will contain new teeth made from ceramic, which we color match to blend with your smile. These can also absorb daily bite forces and pressures too! They will be set in an acrylic base that looks like gum tissues.

Partial Dentures

The denture will contain metal clasps that attach to nearby natural teeth and secure the prosthetic in place, while also remaining invisible once the prosthetic is in place. The prosthetic can last about 5 to 10 years, requiring replacement as the jaw ridge changes shape. This allows you to smile with confidence and enjoy a lifelike smile too. For an option that lasts longer, we could discuss securing them with dental implants instead of clasps. Either way, this will return function, health, and beauty to your smile once again, so you can show off your smile with confidence! We will provide instruction for keeping your smile intact and bright.
