Partial dentures are an option when teeth are missing or there is too much decay to save two or more teeth. This dental solution is a removable dental device that fits snugly in the jaw and replaces missing teeth. Unlike implants or some other dental services, dentures aren’t permanently anchored in the mouth and are designed to be taken out and cleaned.
The dentistry involved with modeling dentures, preparing the mouth and fitting the dentures takes a little longer than some other restorative dental procedures. The dentist will make impressions, create a wax mold to make sure that the denture will fit properly, make any necessary adjustments, have the denture created at a dental lab and finally fit the device.
