Do you need to replace one tooth or a few missing teeth in the upper or lower arch of your mouth? Removable partial dentures provide an alternative to fixed bridges or dental implants. Precision made partials fit comfortably to restore the shape and appearance of your smile.
Partials consist of porcelain or resin replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base. There are many reasons to choose partials, including:
- Often less expensive than other solutions
- Comfortable and flexible
- Removable for easy cleaning and maintenance
- Mimic the look and performance of real teeth
- Custom made to match the color, shape, and size of your choosing
- Supports the shape of your face and cheeks
The Best Choice For Your Unique Needs
If partials are recommended for you, we will help you determine the best type of removable partial denture for your specific needs. There are two main types of partial dentures that are common today:
Conventional Partial Dentures utilize small metal clasps that anchor the denture to surrounding teeth. This prevents the denture from slipping and sliding around.
Precision Attachment Partial Dentures are anchored into place with the help of two dental crowns on each of the surrounding teeth. The denture includes a key-like fitting that attaches to the crowns. Unlike metal clasps, these attachments are not visible.
