Partial dentures  Warren, OH -
A removable partial denture is an optimal solution for patients who may be missing one or more teeth in a particular area of the mouth. Removable partial dentures are attached to a gum-colored base which may have a metal framework in place to hold it in place against the surrounding teeth. These dentures work to replace missing teeth, restore functionality, and improve oral health that may have been previously compromised by missing teeth. When a tooth is lost and the gap is left unfilled, the neighboring teeth may begin to shift significantly. This can alter your bite and may even result in long-term damage to your gums and jaw.

Removable partial dentures are a less invasive procedure to replace and restore missing teeth than alternative solutions. While they are more cost-effective and less invasive than implants, removable partial dentures do require more upkeep and maintenance. Due to the nature of these dentures being removable and essentially resting on your gums, they will need to be cleaned just as much as your natural teeth in order to keep your gums healthy and dentures looking as good as new. Factors such as oral hygiene, location of missing tooth, bone strength, and long-term viability for implants all play an important role in determining your treatment plan.
