Are you missing several teeth due to decay or gum disease? Have many of your teeth been weakened to the point that they are painful or prevent you from enjoying your favorite foods? If so, Dr. Gilreath and associates may recommend that you visit Goose Creek Family Dentistry for a partial denture.
A partial denture is a removable appliance that replaces multiple missing teeth, but fits around the remaining natural teeth. This type of denture uses both the soft tissue ridge and the remaining natural teeth to secure it in place.
Partial dentures can be attached to the natural teeth using clasps or attached using crowns with hidden clasps. Some partials also use metal frameworks. They are designed to look and feel fully natural, and are customized to match the shape, size, and color of your surrounding teeth. When you visit our office, our skilled dentists will evaluate your smile to determine which style of denture best fits your needs, and they will help you make an informed choice.
