Albuquerque, NM area patients who have experienced the loss of one or more teeth are encouraged to work with their dentist at Ivory Dental to discuss restoration of the smile. Dr. Brendon Prestwich and his team of professionals help patients repair the smile’s functionality and appearance with the use of a variety of options. Patients can choose from several tooth restoration solutions at Ivory Dental, including:
- Partial dentures
- Full dentures
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
Partial dentures are a great option for patients seeking an economical solution for the replacement of one or more teeth in the dental arch.
What is a partial?
A partial is a type of denture used to replace missing teeth. It utilizes an acrylic structure with metal framework to snap into the dental arch using the existing teeth for support. False teeth are fused to the denture to slide into place where the missing teeth once were. This provides a restored smile for aesthetics and functionality.
Why choose partial dentures?
Partial dentures have several benefits. They are:
- Easy to remove to clean and care for
- Economical, providing the least expense for replacing one or more teeth
- Simple to adjust as necessary when the facial structure changes
Who is a candidate?
Practically every patient is a candidate for partial dentures. However, not everyone is a candidate for a bridge or implant, so, speaking with Dr. Brendon Prestwich about the tooth replacement options you qualify for is the first step in learning about the ways in which the smile can be appropriately restored based on your specific needs.
