Preserving teeth with Partial Dentures in Middletown
Have you lost several teeth due to advanced gum disease, trauma, or extractions? You may be tempted to have the rest removed and get dentures. That is a reasonable plan in some situations, and the team at University Dental is well-qualified to handle it. However, there can be great advantages to keeping as many of your natural teeth as you are able, for as long as possible. Partial dentures have allowed hundreds of patients in the Middletown area to do exactly that.
Avoiding rock and roll
A partial denture consists of artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored base. In most cases, it is held in place with metal clasps that attach to adjacent teeth. Precision design is critical to keep the denture from rocking and rolling. Unintentional movement of the prosthetic can cause discomfort and embarrassment, and damage natural teeth.
