What are some advantages of a partial denture?
Partial dentures are an economical way to replace several missing teeth. They can also restore your ability to chew and speak properly as well as eliminate any feelings of embarrassment you might be having because of your missing teeth.
You can talk to Dr. Wade Kifer, your dentist in Fayetteville, to find out if partial dentures might be right for you.
Partial dentures are removeable devices that are made to look natural by matching your existing teeth and gums. There are plenty of benefits to getting partial dentures, including:
- They are an affordable tooth replacement option that is often covered by dental insurance.
- Filling in gaps in your mouth with a partial denture will help protect your remaining healthy teeth because they will stop your teeth from shifting and support the jaw and gum tissue.
- They will give you back your confidence because you will no longer have gaps in your mouth when smiling or speaking.
- They are easy to care for, although you should not use regular toothpaste to keep them clean since this can be too abrasive.
If you do decide to get partial dentures, plan to see your dentist twice each year for examinations and cleanings. You will also need to have them adjusted from time to time to ensure a proper fit.
