Partial denture benefits are numerous. They help you to chew your food easier, help you speak better if your speech had changed because of missing teeth. If you have removable partial dentures, they can help support your lips and cheeks, so your face doesn’t sag and make you look older.
If you lose a tooth, the teeth next to it may start to drift or tilt toward the empty spot. The teeth in the jaw may start shifting up or down near that empty spot. It can affect your bite and cause more stress on your jaws and teeth. You might find it is harder cleaning your teeth if they have shifted, and that can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. It is vital to get missing teeth replaced.
Dentists in Windsor can make those removable partial dentures. The dentures dentist in Windsor can usually make replacement teeth that are fixed to an acrylic base that will match the exact color of your gums.
The base of acrylic can cover a metal framework and is built with a form of clasp that will attach to the rest of your natural teeth. It will hold the partial denture in place.
It might be necessary for your dentist to tell you that you need a crown or crowns or some ‘caps,’ on some of your other teeth. The crowns will help with the way a removable partial fits your mouth. Your dentist will design your dentures in Windsor that are right for you.
