What are partial dentures?
Just as the name sounds, partial dentures replace some teeth, not all. The teeth that remain provide support for the partial denture. The partial has a framework with clasps that attach to the remaining teeth to hold it in place. A partial denture is designed so that it transfers the chewing forces to the remaining teeth. This is done in a way that remains natural without placing too much stress on the teeth. Your dentist will consider the overall health of your mouth, patient comfort, and the aesthetic look of the denture.
The benefits of partial dentures include:
- Can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth
- May be more affordable than other replacement options
- More aesthetically pleasing than gaps from missing teeth
- Causes no damage to the surrounding teeth
- Usually does not require surgery
