If you are missing a few teeth, a removable partial denture is one way to replace them. Partial dentures have several benefits.
First, and most importantly, they make it easier for you to chew your food.
They can also help you speak better if your speech has changed due to missing teeth.
Finally, removable partial dentures support the cheeks and lips so the face does not sag and make you look older.
Teeth are made to work together. When you are missing teeth, the nearby teeth may tilt or drift into the empty space. The teeth in the opposite jaw can also shift up or down, ultimately affecting your bite and placing more stress on your teeth and jaw points.
Removable partial dentures have artificial teeth that are fixed to a base, matching the color of your gums. The base may cover a metal framework, such as the one seen here. Partial dentures often have some form of clasp that attaches to your natural teeth.
When first inserted, partial dentures may feel odd or tight for the first few weeks. This is normal, but if you’re experiencing issues or discomfort, it’s best to contact your Denturist. You may simply need an adjustment.
Our frameworks are made by the wonderful team at Unice Dental Art @unice_dental_art . We love supporting local businesses in Calgary! And would like to give them a special thanks for all their beautiful work! 👍
