Smile makeover with complete upper dentures and partial lower dentures

Often called a "partial," this type of denture is often used when only some of the teeth are missing. It is an economical solution that allows all missing teeth in the same arch (either the upper or the lower) to be replaced with one appliance.

A partial denture is a removable appliance held in place by gripping the remaining healthy teeth, usually with metal clasps or wires, and is inherently more stable, therefore more comfortable than a complete denture.

There are many factors that help us to determine if you are a candidate for tooth replacement with a partial denture. Among these factors, the health of the gums and the shape of the anchor teeth are most important.

Reasons For Partial Dentures

•  Multiple teeth missing in the same arch
•  Restore chewing function

The metal clasps are usually visible and usually affect the beauty of your smile. Often, there are options available to reduce or eliminate the need for visible clasps.

Finally, partial dentures can be designed to allow for the future loss of teeth which may not be as healthy as the rest. Alternatives to partial dentures include bridges, implants, and, occasionally, full dentures
