Missing teeth can make it difficult to talk, chew, and smile. It can also bring your self-esteem down. At Olympia Prosthodontics & Cosmetic Dentistry, we are here to help you with your missing teeth with removable partial dentures. This cost-effective tooth replacement option can help you put the days of missing teeth behind you once and for all.
Our prosthodontists carefully fit you with the right removable partial dentures to ensure your comfort and full function of your mouth. We like removable partial dentures because you can take them out when you do not need them, giving your mouth a well-deserved break. We offer the highest quality removable partial dentures along with the gentle dental care to help you fix your missing teeth in the most natural looking way possible.
HOW DO REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES WORK?
Removable partial dentures clasp onto your surrounding teeth. Sometimes, our prosthodontists have to fit the surrounding teeth with crowns to give the dentures a solid base to hold onto, but not always. We will evaluate your mouth carefully to decide how you will be the most successful with your partial dentures.
Our prosthodontists work closely with you to ensure a proper fit for your dentures. This is especially important because your teeth control how you smile, talk, and chew. If you are embarrassed about your smile or are unable to talk right, you may find yourself embarrassed about your dentures rather than enjoying the fact that you no longer have missing teeth. Our prosthodontists ensure that all aspects of your dentures are 100% satisfactory to ensure your happiness.
WHO SHOULD USE REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES?
Anyone that is missing teeth could be a good candidate for removable partial dentures. They are one of the more affordable options when choosing replacement teeth. They are also one of the easiest appliances to get used to. Many of our patients start with removable dentures and then move up to another tooth replacement option such as fixed dentures or dental implants, depending on the health of their mouth.
Partial dentures are a good option for our patients that have little jawbone or have gum issues. If your gums cannot support implants, you could end up with implant failure, which would bring you right back to dentures as your option for tooth replacement.
TAKING A BREAK
The one nice thing about removable partial dentures is that you can remove them as you need to. Many of our patients remove the dentures at nighttime, giving their mouth a much-needed break. We will help you decide how often you should remove your dentures as well as keep an eye on the health of your mouth during checkups to ensure that you do not see any negative side effects as a result of your dentures.
