Fix Your Mouth Gaps with Removable Partial Dentures

If you are missing one or two teeth, your dentist will recommend replacement as soon as practical. While “gappy” smiles are quite common, they can be a bother. Unwanted spaces in your teeth may trap food debris, putting your teeth at risk of decay. Besides, toothless gums are unsightly, something you don’t want in your beautiful smile. 

Removable Partial Denture in Fallbrook California Area

You don’t have to settle for an incomplete smile if you have mouth spaces. At James M. Moran DDS, we offer numerous tooth replacement options to complete your smile. While dental implants and bridges are effective in addressing tooth loss, patients looking for a fast, cost-effective alternative can consider removable partial dentures.

What is a partial denture?

If you are missing several or all your teeth, Dr. James Moran will recommend filling your gaps with full dentures. However, you don’t need a complete set of dentures if you miss one or two teeth. In such cases, a partial denture can do the job.

Like complete dentures, a partial has a gum-colored acrylic base with natural-looking artificial teeth attached. While partials can be fixed on the remaining healthy teeth, your dentist can design a removable option. Here, you simply place the appliance in the gap and clasp it on the remaining teeth.

What to expect from a removable partial denture

If you want to fill your mouth gaps with a partial, the first step is to book an appointment with Dr. Moran. After we evaluate you are a perfect candidate for a partial, we will take your bite impressions to manufacture well-fitting and natural-looking dentures.

Once your removable denture is ready, we will train you on how to insert it. This process might look tricky at first, but it becomes second nature once you get used to it. Also, your denture might feel cumbersome and bulky initially, but this becomes completely normal with time. After getting used to your denture, you will speak and chew without difficulty. Besides, your smile will look beautiful and complete more than ever.
