A partial denture is an appliance that replaces missing teeth when some natural teeth remain. It supports and works in harmony with an existing denture and functions compatibly with any remaining teeth to ensure normal chewing function and efficiency.
Partial dentures also maintain proper contact between upper and lower teeth as well as spacing between existing natural teeth. This helps to prevent malocclusion and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
During all phases of partial denture construction, we work in cooperation with both patients and their dentists. Further, in set-up, construction, and processing of partial dentures, we use the same materials, training, and techniques used in our other denture specialties.
