Complete Your Smile with Removable Partial Dentures in Union, KY
Is your smile incomplete? One of the most economical ways to restore a smile with a few missing teeth is with a removable partial denture. Unlike a full denture, a partial is on a framework that fits around the remaining teeth. At the office of Dr. Wright, Dr. Massie, & Dr. Lincoln, we can restore your full smile with a partial denture.
A Closer Look at the Removable Partial Denture
A partial denture is a removable dental appliance made out of either an acrylic or metal base that fills in gaps in your smile. For example, if you are missing some of your front teeth, the partial will have synthetic gum material and teeth mounted on a base that slips around your existing teeth. The appliance gives you the restored appearance of a full smile.
The Process of Getting Your Removable Partial Denture
To get a removable partial denture, you will go through a series of steps with the dentist that may include:
A full oral exam and x-ray
Taking impressions and measurements
Going over gingival and tooth shade choices
Fitting with a wax mockup
The final partial is made and then fitted during an appointment. You may wear the partial for a week or two to make sure it is comfortable and functions well before coming in for a follow-up appointment.
