Partial dentures are removable, custom-made dentures made of lightweight metal alloys covered in part by a gum-colored acrylic to create a more natural look when you smile. The device, which can replace one or more missing teeth, is made of plastic resins or porcelain. On each end of the partial dentures, metal clasps secure the device to the adjacent teeth of the space requiring a tooth or teeth replacements.
Partial dentures are for people who are only missing one or a few teeth due to injury, disease, or age and want to improve their smile. If missing teeth are your dental concerns, you will want to consider partial dentures. Our friendly, knowledgeable dental team at Titensor Dental will gladly discuss your options for replacement teeth, taking into account the dental health of your remaining teeth and overall dental health goals.
One of the significant advantages of partial dentures is that they are removable, and you can easily remove them from your mouth. You may want to remove the partial dentures so chewing is easier. Partial dentures also allow an even pressure distribution when you bite down saving the wearing down of gum and bone area where the tooth or teeth are missing. Dr. Titensor can produce partial dentures so that the metal clasps do not show, creating a more natural look, and if, unfortunately, you lose another tooth in the same area, he can add a new replacement tooth to your existing set of partial dentures.
When evaluating your dental options for tooth or teeth replacement, you will learn that many people prefer partial dentures to dental implants because partial dentures are effective immediately. Dental implants require months to heal. Another advantage when considering partial dentures is that they are nearly always much less expensive than dental implants.

Prior to getting partial dentures of any type, you want to schedule your dental exam with Dr. Titensor. During your dental examine, Dr. Titensor will closely evaluate your remaining teeth and your gums. Signs of gum disease or unstable teeth do not mean you are not a candidate for partial dentures, but remember; partial dentures rely on your gums and your existing teeth to remain in place. What Dr. Titensor will recommend at this point is for you to undergo dental procedures before you start wearing your partial dentures to make sure the partial dentures do not cause your oral health to deteriorate further.
