Why Fill in Smile Gaps at All?
When you have a few missing teeth, you may be tempted to just ignore them. Yet doing so can lead to serious problems over time. Even if you do not get them replaced permanently with tooth implants, you could be facing other concerns in the future, such as:
- The teeth surrounding the gaps may start to lean out of alignment.
- You may get bacteria caught in the gums at and around the missing teeth.
- Other teeth may begin to loosen and eventually fall out.
Why take chances with your oral health? A partial denture not only completes your grin, but it protects you, too!
How Partial Dentures Work
A partial denture looks a lot like the retainers worn after having braces. Attached to a metal framework, they are carefully crafted replacement teeth made of natural-looking materials. When you slide the framework into place, it stays where it belongs and anchors the replacement teeth into position. No one will ever know that you have a partial denture!
Partial Denture and Complete Denture Costs
The costs associated with your prosthesis will vary depending on the type made and upon any dental coverage you may have. When you visit Belle Meade Family Dentistry to talk about any kind of denture devices, we will examine the type of coverage you have. This will help you understand any out-of-pocket expenses before work begins.
