Ivy Rose Family Dentistry offers various dental solutions to suit the needs of all our patients. We always recommend that missing teeth are replaced. If you have teeth that are missing, the teeth that are remaining can change position or shift, causing them to drift into the empty spaces that have been left by missing teeth. When you get teeth out of place, you can experience serious oral health issues. One way to take care of missing teeth is partial dentures.
If you are interested in getting a comprehensive exam to see if a partial denture is the best option for your situation, feel free to visit any of our dental office locations. We have offices located in Arlington and Mansfield, TX.
Preparing for Partials
If you have decided to correct any missing teeth by getting partial dentures, you should thoroughly clean between any teeth that are crooked or out of place although it can be challenging to do so. Without proper cleaning, your risks of periodontal disease and tooth decay increase significantly. You don’t want to end up with problems that cause additional tooth loss. Instead, you want to fix the problem at hand. Partials are removable dental appliances that mimic natural teeth’s functionality and appearance.
Partial dentures are held in place with your existing teeth. The teeth used to hold the partial in place need to be healthy and strong so that they can serve your partial in place. If there are concerns, the teeth that are used to hold the partial in place may require treatment before the partial denture is made and placed in your mouth. Partial dentures can significantly improve your smile by filling in the gaps that are left by teeth that are missing.
Kinds of Partial Dentures
There are different kinds of partials. They can be made from a variety of materials, including metal, resin, or acrylic or a combination of two of those materials. After a thorough examination, we can determine if a partial denture will suit your needs and which material will work best for you. We will work to help you regain your self-confidence and have a smile you will proud to show off. Contact Ivy Rose Family Dentistry today to schedule an appointment.
