Five Surprising Benefits of Removable Partial Dentures

When patients hear about dentures, they assume these appliances only replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaw. This notion can’t be further from the truth. If you are missing one or more teeth, you can get partial dentures to complete your smile. Unlike complete dentures that sit above your gums, partials consist of a plastic and metal framework attached to the surrounding healthy teeth. Partial dentures function like bridges by connecting or closing the gap between two adjacent healthy teeth.

Removable Partial Denture Benefits in Azusa CA Area

Why would you choose removable partial dentures to replace lost teeth? Our team at Gentle Care Dentistry works closely with our Azusa, California, patients to narrow down the best teeth replacement options. 

Here are five reasons we may recommend partial dentures: 

  • Restored chewing: Partial dentures can revive your strong bite and help you enjoy your favorite foods that once seemed forgotten
  • Renewed confidence: Your smile never looks complete with unsightly gaps. Removable partials can close those gaps, giving you the confidence to show off your beautiful smile. With partials, you don’t have to hold your mouth when smiling. You can smile from ear to ear, and no one will notice you have a tooth replacement
  • Easier to clean: Unlike fixed bridges, you can remove partial dentures whenever needed. Their retractable nature makes it easier to clean them and your mouth
  • They maintain your jaw structure: Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic concern. Your teeth help maintain the structure of your jaw and the stability of the nearby teeth. Even one missing tooth can throw off the delicate alignment of your teeth. Over time, the surviving teeth start shifting into the empty space. Partial dentures stabilize these adjacent teeth to maintain your healthy teeth alignment
  • Customized comfort: With partial dentures, you don’t have to worry about an uncomfortable fit when talking or chewing. Our dental team crafts customized partials after taking molds of your teeth to reduce discomfort when using your teeth
