Partial Dentures

[et_pb_dcsbcm_divi_breadcrumbs_module _builder_version=”4.0.6″][/et_pb_dcsbcm_divi_breadcrumbs_module]

Looking for the most affordable option for missing teeth?

Partial Dentures are less expensive than implants and are a functional, long lasting way to replace broken down or missing teeth. It is the most affordable option for missing teeth if you are part of the 50% of patients who tolerates them.

The Cost of Doing Nothing:

Bad teeth are more than just a pain and missing teeth don’t just go away. Broken down teeth destroy bone and spread infection. But when a tooth is removed, it leaves behind a dark hole in the smile, bone loss sets in, teeth begin to shift and chewing becomes less effective. In order to avoid more expensive complications, infected teeth need to be extracted and the space needs to be filled with implants, bridges or a partial denture.

Partial Dentures - most affordable option for missing teeth

Why Choose a Partial Denture?

Of the three options (implants, bridges and partials), partial denture are usually the most affordable option for missing teeth and carry the benefit of being able to add teeth as needed. Partials fill the dark hole left by a missing tooth, stop the neighboring teeth from shifting and provide new teeth for chewing, solving three of the four problems caused by missing teeth. Plus, a well designed partial can last for years.

Partial Dentures Problems:

In healthcare, very few solutions are perfect and partials are no exception. Knowing the the pros and the cons helps prevent unpleasant surprises!

Here are the most common issues people experience with partial dentures.

  • Bone Loss: PReplacing missing teeth with partials do not stop bone loss.
  • Gum Loss: The gums are like bone’s clingy best friend. Gum always follows bone. As bone is lost, gums shrink up with it.
  • Gum Discomfort: Partial Dentures put the weight of chewing on the gums. This is usually uncomfortable and can cause sores.
  • Tooth Wear: Partials stay in place with metal clasps wrapped around anchor teeth. Over time, these clasps wear down and weaken those teeth.
  • Compromised Esthetics: Gum loss leads to an uneven gumline and dark shadows between partial teeth and receding gums.
  • Psychological Price: All removable denture options impact how people feel about themselves. The severity of this effect varies from person to person, but the reality remains that having to remove your teeth at night speeds aging and impacts confidence.
  • Rock n Roll: As bone loss progresses, partial dentures no longer sit still during chewing and talking. This can be solved or reduced with relines and redesigns; however, it requires patience since bone loss never stops.

So Why Choose a Partial?

With that list of problems, you may be wondering who chooses a partial…Actually, lots of people do.

Why do people choose partials? Because of the cost. Implants are the ideal solution for missing teeth because they solve all four missing teeth problems: the cosmetics, the bone loss, the shifting teeth and the chewing problems. However, multiple implants cost more than a partial. Sometimes, replacing multiple teeth with multiple implants is simply out of the question and partials are the most affordable option for missing teeth. A partial denture is a cost effective, functional and long lasting solution for replacing missing teeth.

Friendly and Caring

Dr. Bec and everyone else at this office are both friendly and caring! I had major problems and required my upper teeth to be pulled and implants to be installed along with an attached upper denture to be fitted. It was quite a process and they took care of me from beginning to end with no complaints from me! They were incredible and I have nothing but good things to say about all of them! Dr Bec will be my dentist for life! Thank you all very much for the smile you gave back to me!

Straightforward and Knowledgable

Dr. Bec was very friendly and answered all my questions in a straightforward manner, so it was one of the few times I didn't feel awkward about asking about my dental concerns. The staff was very friendly also.
I would highly recommend giving this place a try if you are on the hunt (like I was) for a new dentist.
