If you are missing several teeth, a partial denture might be your best option for replacement. A partial denture is an affordable way to improve your ability to speak and chew properly.

Residents of Fayetteville who are interested in learning more about partial dentures should call Dr. Wade Kifer at Northwest Arkansas Family Dental. Dr. Kifer can help you decide if a partial denture is right for you.

What Are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are a removable dental prosthetic designed to replace several missing teeth. They are made to look natural by matching your gums and your surrounding teeth.

Benefits of Partial Dentures

Partial dentures offer patients an affordable way to replace missing teeth that will also improve their ability to speak and chew; in addition, without the gaps left by missing teeth, patients will be able to smile with confidence.

Partial dentures give patients with missing teeth a stable bite, protecting the healthy teeth in their mouth. Partial dentures also help prevent additional tooth loss by supporting the jaw and gum tissue.

Partial dentures are the most affordable way to replace missing teeth and are even often covered by dental insurance. 

How to Care for Your Partial Dentures

You will need to be diligent about taking care of your partial dentures just as you are with your natural teeth. You can use special denture cleanser to keep your partial dentures clean. It is important that you do not use regular toothpaste on them as this can be damaging to the partials.

You will also need to visit the dentist regularly to have your partial dentures adjusted to ensure a proper fit.
