An important step in maintaining a healthy smile is to replace missing teeth. When teeth are missing, the remaining teeth can change position, drifting into the surrounding space. Teeth that are out of position can damage tissues in the mouth. In addition, it may be difficult to clean thoroughly between crooked teeth. As a result, you run the risk of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to the loss of additional teeth.
A removable partial denture fills in the space created by missing teeth and fills out your smile. It usually consists of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework. A denture helps you to properly chew food, a difficult task when you are missing teeth. In addition, a denture may improve speech and prevent a sagging face by providing support for lips and cheeks. Our doctors will design a partial that will fit your needs and be as esthetic as possible. Some partials have no metal and are barely noticeable.
While a complete set of dental implants is the best solution for missing teeth, many people have a hard time fitting that into their budget. An acceptable compromise could be a snap-on denture. Dentistry With TLC is one of the few offices in the area providing Snap-On dentures.
It snaps in so that it is reasonably secure, but it can still be removed for cleaning. Most of your normal chewing efficiency will be restored, and you won't have the worry of loose teeth or having a lisp that is associated with loose teeth.
