Get that confident smile back with a natural looking partial denture customized just for you. Dental partials can also help you speak and eat more naturally by replacing the void left by missing teeth.
What are Partial Dentures?
When you have a missing tooth, your whole mouth suffers. With partial dentures, your dentist can help you improve the function and appearance of your teeth.
Partial dentures replace a missing tooth or a few missing teeth with a dental appliance. Unlike full dentures, partial dentures are used to replace a portion of teeth and not a full dental arch. Partials are removable plates with a replacement tooth that fits into the space left by your missing tooth or teeth.
Dangers of Ignoring Missing Teeth
Having a missing tooth or teeth affects your entire mouth and even your physical health. Avoiding dental solutions for your missing tooth can lead to the following issues:
- Damage or deterioration of the Jaw bone
- Facial muscles start to lack the support they receive from teeth and your face will begin to sag
- Early signs of aging
- Damage and decay spread to other teeth
- Damage to your gums
- Gum disease
- Tilting and shifting of other teeth as they try to fill the space
- Jaw pain
- Immune system issues
- Heart disease
The compassionate and experienced team at Carolina Oaks Dental Care will work with you to repair your teeth before disease or infections can spread. We know many people are frightened of tooth loss or embarrassed of their missing teeth, so we approach each dental issue with kindness and consideration. Our carefully constructed partials will restore beauty and function to your teeth.
How Partials Work
Partials are placed inside your mouth and held into place by being attached to existing teeth. You can remove your partials when needed for cleaning or during sleep.
Partials are designed to perfectly fit the space left by your missing teeth. They provide much-needed support and pressure to your jaw to ensure continued health in your jaw bone. Partials allow you to eat, speak and smile more confidently and comfortably.
