Partial Dentures – Winchester VA
Partial dentures are available to replace multiple missing teeth in one single arch. Partial dentures involve prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base and removable partial dentures attach to the teeth with metal framework and clips. A fixed bridge, commonly known as crown and bridgework, is permanently bonded to the teeth to prevent it from altering positions.
When there is a need to replace teeth on the upper or lower arch, Apple Blossom Dentistry can provide full custom dentures tailored for you. There may only be a need for a partial denture if you are looking to replace multiple missing teeth on an arch. Partial dentures are placed within the gaps between your other teeth, creating that complete smile. They’re attached to hidden clasps on neighboring teeth. To secure full dentures, patients often use adhesive creams or natural suction instead.
Implant-retained dentures provide a way to secure your dentures. Eventually the gum ridges can wear down and decrease the stability of your partial or full dentures. Implant retained dentures use dental implants to anchor the prosthetic. Dental implant posts are initially placed into the jaw; they require a specific amount of bone density in order to heal properly. Once healed, your denture simply clips onto the dental implant posts, providing a solid and attractive smile. Partial dentures can also be anchored with dental implants.
Implant-retained dentures have numerous benefits:
- Easier speech and chewing function
- Can lead to better dental health and improved nutrition
- Provides more confidence in your prosthetic teeth
- Stops bone loss and jawbone atrophy
- No more slipping or sliding
- Eliminates embarrassing clicking noises
