When you have a case of tooth loss too severe for a bridge or individual dental implant, but not serious enough to require a complete set of dentures, what do you do? Our team can help fill the gaps in your smile with a secure and lifelike solution. With our team of implant dentistry experts in Dallas, TX, we can offer a new smile with partial dentures.
Complicated Cases of Tooth Loss
A complicated case of tooth loss is usually one with multiple gaps spread out across the arch due to tooth loss. These situations may be too complex to be addressed with a dental bridge, and individual dental implants could be too complicated. You may still have enough natural teeth remaining that extracting them to pave the way for full prosthetic isn’t necessary. In these situations, we have an in-between option known as partial dentures. These can fill the gaps in your smile with a single prosthetic, which also prevents complications like misalignment from occurring, keeping your smile full and even.
Creating a Custom Partial
To begin, we will examine the smile and if necessary, extract any diseased or infected teeth. We then take detailed digital images and measurements from multiple angles, and use them in a lab setting to design and craft your partial prosthetic. The denture will contact an acrylic base that looks like gum tissue, with new teeth attached that look natural and can handle daily bite forces with ease. Each one is custom-made to ensure a comfortable fit and a lifelike appearance, as well as a balanced bite too. You will be able to eat your favorite foods again and smile with confidence! Clear speech is also possible too.
Securing Your New Tooth
There are two attachment options. The most common are metal clasps that connect to natural teeth to secure your new smile in place. We also have precision attachments, which are nearly invisible and more esthetically-pleasing than the metal clasps. We may include crowns to secure the partial in place. We will help you decide which option is right for you, and explain the best ways to clean and care for your new prosthetics, so your new smile can last for years to come. If you have any questions about how we design and address tooth loss, or about our partial dentures in particular, then please reach out to our team today. Let’s start 2024 on the path to a full smile!
