Replace a Single Tooth with a Quality Partial Denture
You can replace a single tooth that is missing with one of many options. Some patients might benefit from a partial denture, while others may be fitted for a dental bridge. In specific cases where multiple teeth are missing, a full denture may be a better option to restore function and appearance. Dental implants are also used to replace one or more missing teeth, providing a permanent solution for tooth loss. Speak with Dr. Jameela Jifri and her associates at Huron Dental Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, about your best options. Let’s talk about single-tooth replacement in the smile using partial dentures, a popular choice for those who want a removable and affordable solution to replacing one or more teeth in the dental arch.
What exactly is a partial denture?
Our team at Huron Dental Centre describes the partial denture as a removable prosthesis that replaces one or more missing teeth in the smile. It is made of a plastic, acrylic base that closely resembles the gums and natural teeth, with metal clasps holding it securely in place within the dental arch. It uses the existing teeth as an anchor to function properly so patients can eat correctly and speak clearly.
How does it work?
The partial denture fits comfortably over the remaining natural teeth, using metal clasps to hold it securely. This means that patients do not have to undergo invasive placement procedures, such as with dental implants. The partial denture can easily be removed for cleaning and nighttime use, making it a convenient option for many patients who want to replace their missing tooth with a removable appliance. For most patients, partial dentures are affordable, especially compared to implants or bridges.
What are the benefits of a partial denture?
There are several advantages to using a partial denture to replace one or more teeth. Below are some of the benefits Dr. Jameela Jifri and associates at Huron Dental Centre may relay to patients who are considering their options. Partial dentures:
- restore function in the smile for proper speaking and chewing
- improve the appearance of the smile
- can be easily removed for cleaning and nighttime use
- are affordable compared to other tooth replacement options
