To help you finally replace your missing teeth, our team happily offers partial dentures!
Partial dentures are a great option for those who have consecutive missing teeth and for those who wish to complete their smile with a functional yet removable product. A partial denture gives you the smile you need and the freedom you want, and we are happy to tell you all about it.
A partial denture has a pink, gum-like base that has beautiful false teeth attached to the bottom or top. This appliance can be simply inserted into the mouth by placing it into the gap of the smile and clasping it to the remaining natural teeth on both sides. When wearing the denture, you can expect the following things:
–It may feel awkward and bulky at first. This is completely normal and it will go away with time.
–Removing as well as inserting the appliance might require some practice. Some find it to be a tricky task.
–Your dentist will give you specific instructions on how to care for as well as use the denture. Make sure you follow these instructions and do not bite down on the appliance when placing it into your mouth. We will also give you instructions on when, where, and how long to wear the appliance.
–You may need to practice eating when you first start wearing the denture. You can practice by eating small, soft foods and gradually moving up to large, solid foods once you become more familiar with the appliance.
–Speaking might also be difficult, which is completely normal. All you need is a little bit of practice. Simply read out loud throughout the day and repeat words that are difficult to say. These things will help your tongue become more familiar with the appliance.
