Partial Dentures Las Vegas
Las Vegas partial dentures are used to replace one or more missing teeth. If a patient has healthy teeth remaining, a partial denture can be designed to fit in between those remaining teeth, so that no further extractions are needed. Partial dentures are either fixed, which means they are anchored down, or they are removable, allowing the wearer to take the partial denture out for cleaning.
People lose teeth for many reasons. Gum disease, decay, illness, injury, and accidents are all common reasons for tooth loss. Many people can be sensitive about missing teeth, and ABC Dental Implant Center Las Vegas understands that patients may be fearful or anxious. Dr. Kevin Khorshid puts patient comfort and care above everything else, and has become very popular among Las Vegas patients looking for partial dentures thanks to his expertise and chair side manner.
How Do Partial Dentures Work?
Partial dentures use the surrounding healthy teeth for support. In the case of fixed partial dentures, crowns are attached to the two teeth on either side of the gap. Those crowns act as the anchor for the false teeth, and everything is cemented permanently in place. Sometimes, Dr. Khorshid will recommend that dental implants are used to anchor the partial denture.
When partial dentures are removable, the prosthetic is created with tiny, finger-like “clasps” that wrap snugly and invisibly around the surrounding teeth, keeping the partial in place.
Several factors determine whether you are a candidate for fixed partial dentures or removable partial dentures. Dr. Khorshid conducts thorough consultations with patients to determine the best solution for your new partial. Both fixed and removable partial dentures are designed to match your remaining teeth in size, shape and color. Most people will never know you are wearing a partial, unless you tell them or remove it.
Why Partial Dentures?
Some patients wrongly assume that once they lose one or two teeth, their only option is to let the rest fall out or have them removed and then get conventional dentures. This may be the right choice for some patients, but it’s not right for everyone, especially if your tooth loss is due to an injury or accident. It is critical to your oral health to keep as many of your natural teeth as possible. Partials are used to help keep your remaining teeth in place, which helps prolong their health.
Some of the benefits of partial dentures include:
- Reduce stress on your jaw
- Keep remaining teeth from shifting
- Decrease your risk of gum disease due to exposed tissue
- Make eating and speaking easier
- Improve self-esteem and confidence
- Look younger longer
