Partial dentures are natural-looking dental appliances that are removable. They help restore the structure and function of your jaw by replacing one or several missing teeth.
About Partial Dentures
Also known as a removable crown, this dental solution bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, you can wear your removable crown whenever you want. You can wear them while eating or remove them when it’s time to sleep. Another benefit of this alternative is that you will not see a metal clasp. A healthy tooth supports your partial dentures on either side of the gap. An internal metal framework connects them to keep them in place.
Partial dentures can be worn immediately after the tooth is removed. This means you don’t have to go without your glowing smile during the healing period. As the gums heal, they may need minor adjustments.
