|| Considering partial dentures? Call Clear Creek Family and Cosmetic Dentistry at 254-200-1893 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rohini Singh and find out if partial dentures in Killeen, Texas, are right for you.
When you visit our office, our dentist will examine your entire mouth to determine if partial dentures are a good option for replacing your missing teeth and restoring your smile.
A removable partial denture is designed to replace one or more teeth, rather than a full dental arch. In addition to restoring your smile, partials give you a more natural appearance and restore your clarity of speech and ability to eat normally.
Partial Dentures – Types and Materials
Partial dentures may be created out of acrylic or out of a metal and acrylic composite. They are designed based on your specific needs and anatomy to create a dental prosthetic that preserves the remaining teeth and oral tissues and which is self-cleansing. Generally speaking, partial dentures made of metal are preferable, as they are thinner, more hygienic and structurally superior. Partials made of acrylic are typically used as temporary dentures.
Benefits of Partial Dentures
Removable partial dentures may help limit tooth movement for your existing teeth. They also allow you to chew food properly, which improves digestion. The chewing forces are distributed evenly over the entire surface area of the remaining teeth and soft tissues to create a more balanced bite and better oral function.
