Partial dentures will help to restore a more youthful and fuller look to your face. Your face will not only have a more youthful appearance, bite you will once again be able to chew your food thoroughly and speak clearly. Partial dentures are also referred to as a removable bridge. It consists of replacement teeth that are attached to a gum-colored plastic or resin base. Sometimes this is connected by metal framework that will hold the denture in place in your mouth. Partial dentures are used when there are one or more natural teeth that remain in the upper or lower jaw. The partial dentures will be made to precisely fit around the remaining teeth. The partial dentures will actually protect these remaining teeth and help ensure that they are able to remain healthy in your mouth. The partial dentures will do this by keeping the remaining teeth in your mouth from changing position. Should this occur, constant small tooth movement can cause teeth to develop problems, and can lead to additional tooth loss. However, the partial dentures are very successful in keeping existing permanent teeth healthy, so this should no longer be a concern. There are different ways that partial dentures can be attached in your mouth. Sometimes partial dentures can have internal attachments that attach to adjacent crowns. Our dentist in Amesbury will be able to assess your individual dental situation and determine which type of partial dentures will work best for you.
