Implant-supported partial dentures are typically recommended when you have lost some teeth but still have healthy natural teeth. Partial dentures are custom-made oral appliances used to fill the gaps in your smile and are designed to help restore your smile and preserve your remaining natural teeth. Partials help restore natural appearance and function, making it easier for you to speak and chew, and supporting your cheeks and lips to prevent your facial contours from sagging.
A partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth fixed into an acrylic base. This denture is then fixed to strategically placed implants to provide a secure fit and stability for your new teeth. Your final result should look, feel and function just like your original teeth.
Make sure to follow all care instructions provided by our dentist. This will help you recover from the implant placement process as well as ensuring that your partial remains in good condition so that you can eat, speak and smile normally.
