The teeth in the front of your mouth play an important role in helping you bite off pieces of food, while also presenting their appearance in your smile, and helping you make certain syllables in your speech. If multiple front teeth have been lost to untreated cavities or severe dental trauma it can severely limit your basic oral function.
If you are averse to the oral surgery and timeline required to restore the teeth with dental implants Dr. Guy M. Bennett might recommend fitting you for a partial denture. This is a small version of a complete denture that is removable. While it’s installed in your mouth it will replicate the function and appearance of your missing teeth.
The dental appliance will fit tightly with the basic structure of your gums. Yet many partial denture wearers like to apply a little denture adhesive for an extra secure hold. It can also help to block out stray food particles from getting between the base of the dentures and your gums.
Dr. Guy M. Bennett will provide you with any necessary care an cleaning instructions to help maintain your new partial denture.
