Partial dentures from your dentist near Antioch a perfect temporary solution to missing teeth

In the instance that several teeth have been lost or need to be removed, your dentist may recommend replacement with a partial denture, one of a few tooth replacement options. We know what conventional full dentures are all about, but you may wonder about a partial denture, and wonder what it can do for you.

We use partial dentures as a viable form of tooth replacement, helping our patients from Antioch and surrounding areas resume normal eating habits quickly. Partials are different from full conventional dentures. A full denture appliance includes "gums,” made from acrylic, as well as teeth, comprising the entire arch. In contrast, partial dentures are based on an acrylic and metal framework onto which one or several artificial teeth are attached.

Today, tooth replacement can be successfully achieved in a few different ways. Common long-term solutions that facilitate physical comfort and psychological wellbeing are dental implants and dental bridges. You may need time to determine which long-term options is best suited to you, however, and a partial denture is the idea temporary stand-in. Partials are comfortable and convenient, with the metal framework covered by durable, natural-looking plastic, to which artificial teeth are affixed. Partial dentures can be easily inserted into place to close the gap left by missing teeth. As they are inserted with ease, partials can be removed easily for cleaning.

Dr. Alkhoury encourages patients to address the space left by tooth loss as quickly as possible to promote ongoing health and an attractive smile. Over time, if a gap is not filled, surrounding teeth will shift out of position. Bone structure underneath the gap will also deteriorate over time. This gradual process leads to changes in facial contours, often making one appear older. Chewing is also altered when missing teeth are not replaced, affecting efficiency necessary for optimal digestion. The changes that occur after the loss of teeth can be detrimental to your psychological and physical wellbeing.

Partial dentures are not only a temporary solution to missing teeth. For many, this tooth replacement treatment is more suitable than dental implants or a dental bridge. Dr. Alkhoury uses the same standard of care in all situations, so that you will feel fully confident with your choice of tooth replacement.
