The loss of one or more teeth can hurt the health and appearance of your smile. Without treatment, missing teeth make eating, speaking, and even smiling difficult. Fortunately, at Loukas Dentistry we offer an innovative solution for multiple missing teeth: partial dentures. A set of prosthetics will be created with metal clasps on each end. The clasps will attach to the natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, anchoring your new restorations in place.
What are Partial Dentures?
When several teeth are missing and a bridge or implants are not an option, an appliance can be constructed by your Park Ridge dentist to replace them. A set of prosthetics will be created with metal clasps on each end. The clasps will attach to the natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, anchoring your new restorations in place. Usually one fee is charged no matter the amount of teeth replaced, a very economical way to provide the patient with confidence, comfort, and the ability to enjoy a good meal again! Please make your appointment today to see if partial dentures are the best choice for improving your smile.
Will My Partials Look Natural?
Partials can be made of several different materials. The most common are either metal based or plastic based. The plastic (we prefer Valplast) offers a higher level of flexibility and improved esthetics while metal bases are stronger and more rigid but have a reduced esthetic quality. Every case is different and your dentist will talk to you about your treatment options at the beginning of your treatment. We will design and fabricate partial dentures that look and function like natural teeth.
