Removable Prosthetics (Dentures and Partials)
If several or all of your teeth are missing, then the possible need for dentures or partial dentures comes into play. These removable devices, taken in and out of the mouth on a daily basis, can restore overall chewing function and the appearance of the mouth. They include:
•Metal-based partial dentures
•Acrylic partial dentures
•Implanted-supported complete dentures or partial dentures
Your teeth help to support the appearance of your face. Once missing, they can cause a caved-in profile, leaving you with an older, more wrinkled appearance. In addition to giving you back those pearly whites, restoration with a denture or partial denture will bring support back to your facial profile, gaining you a more youthful appearance.
