A partial removable dental prosthesis (denture) replaces missing teeth to avoid problems and to improve the aesthetics of the smile.
An incomplete dentition can make the face appear much older. If you have missing teeth, the adjacent teeth could shift over time.
Consequences of missing teeth
- Difficulties chewing and speaking
- Premature war of adjacent teeth
- Instability and poor alignment
- Neck, ear and head aches
- Strained digestion
A partial removable dental prosthesis (denture) replaces missing teeth to avoid these problems. The denture is made of metal and acrylic materials. The prosthesis stays into place thanks to clasps that latches to natural teeth.
It is recommended to have your dentist do a check-up every year, and to replace your partial denture every five years.
