Bridging the gap with a partial denture
Partial dentures can be the perfect solution for clients with missing teeth or a missing tooth. Partial dentures, which are removable, look natural, seamlessly fitting in beside your teeth, helping you feel confident about your smile. Partial dentures, however, aren’t all about aesthetics as your denture specialist will tell you. Partial dentures can also help restore the form and function of your jaw. When you are missing one or more teeth, the bite pressures shift in your mouth. Other teeth may shift to compensate for the gap and this can create problems down the road. Partial dentures offer an easy and relatively inexpensive fix that will make you look and feel great.

A removable partial denture consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink plastic base, which is connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. A partial denture is removable.
For first-time partial denture wearers, the initial fit and function may seem awkward.
Cutting up your food into small bites at the beginning will help you become comfortable eating with your new denture. As you become more confident, you can start adding different foods into your diet. You may still have trouble eating particularly sticky, hard, or chewy foods. However, most patients have few problems once they have adjusted to their new dentures.
The life of your partial denture depends on the fit and the oral health of your remaining teeth. Denture teeth can wear down and stain faster than natural teeth, and tissues in your mouth may change over time. This can result in an improper fit and the need to replace or reline your existing partial.
