Partial dentures can be a great option for patients who are missing a few of their natural teeth. Unlike complete dentures, partial dentures are attached to your remaining natural teeth using clasps. Aside from replacing missing teeth, partial dentures can:
Improve your ability to chew
Improve your ability to speak clearly
Aid in the preservation of your remaining natural teeth
Help prevent or treat problems of the TMJ (the jaw joint)
In most cases, crowning teeth is not necessary to fit a partial denture. Partial dentures are usually made of acrylic, chrome or vellplast and are typically expected to last about 5 years.
