The Advantages of Partial Dentures
When a person has a single missing tooth or cracked tooth, they are usually not going to worry about it as it may not seem like a big deal. They still have the rest of their teeth, so why worry over one? Well, even one single missing tooth can end up costing you thousands of dollars in dental fees over time.
This is because the rest of your teeth surrounding the missing tooth will need to pick up the slack. You will probably end up favouring one side of your mouth, causing those teeth to wear down faster than they would normally, leading to costly dental procedures that could be avoided.
If you lose a tooth but still have healthy remaining teeth, then partial dentures are a great option for you. Read on to learn what partial dentures are and the advantages of having them.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Usually removable, partial dentures replace multiple teeth in the upper or lower part of the mouth. Although they can be used cosmetically to fill any gaps you may have from missing teeth, they are also used to enhance both chewing and speaking.
However, partial dentures are not meant to be worn around the clock. We suggest and recommend removing your partial dentures at night so that you can give your mouth a bit of a break, and so you can clean the dentures. When you clean your partial dentures you are not only keeping the bacteria off of them, but you will also reduce the risk of developing cavities in the nearby teeth.
Advantages of Partial Dentures
There are quite a few advantages of partial dentures including the price tag. Partial dentures have a much lower cost than other tooth replacement options which is why they are gaining popularity. As well, they are much less invasive than other tooth replacement options.
Partial dentures are a great option to replace lost teeth if you have natural teeth which can be saved. If you have healthy teeth remaining, then we don’t want to remove those which is why we suggest a partial denture. Partial dentures will be able to help keep those remaining teeth healthy by preventing them from shifting or weakening.
As well as keeping the remaining teeth in your mouth healthy, partial dentures also help to keep the soft tissue and bone in your mouth healthy. When you lose a tooth or multiple teeth, you can experience shrinking of the soft tissue and the bone that is near the missing teeth that can lead to your physical appearance being altered. By replacing these gaps with partial dentures, you are keeping the underlying structure of your mouth active and engaged.
