Do you have multiple missing teeth? If so, getting a partial denture from SC Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry can be an ideal tooth replacement option.
A partial denture is a removable prosthetic that replaces your missing teeth on the same arch. It quickly restores your smile and ability to chew. Partial dentures are to be taken out of the mouth to be cleaned, and when you sleep.
Why replace my missing teeth?
A partial denture also prevents some of the oral health problems that can result from living with lost teeth. Over time, missing teeth can cause malocclusion—also known as bad bite—that can occur as your remaining teeth shift into the gap in your mouth. Eventually, living with missing teeth can lead to the deterioration of supporting bone structure, increasing your risk of losing additional teeth.
SC Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry offers two different types of partial dentures.
This partial denture consists of a metal framework, which is covered by an acrylic base. Prosthetic teeth are bonded to the base; those teeth are matched in shape and color to look like your remaining natural teeth. The metal framework includes a set of clasps, which attach the partial to your natural teeth, giving a secure fit.
This type of partial is ideal for patients who have a metal allergy, or who need a tooth replacement in a highly visible area. Because metal-free partials do not have any metal in the framework and clasps, these dentures are almost impossible to distinguish from your natural teeth. Metal-free partials also are lighter weight and more flexible. They typically are a more comfortable fit than a metal partial, because they lack the clasps that are known to irritate the gum line.
You no longer have to live with the inconvenience, discomfort or potential health risks of lost teeth. Contact the office of SC Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry at (864) 647-9000 to learn more about partial dentures or any of our other tooth replacement options.
