Partial Dentures

When you have missing teeth, replacing them is the most important step for maintaining your overall dental health. Many tooth replacement options are available at Fife Dental Care, and we can help you choose your best option – whether that means a dental implant, bridge, or partial dentures.

What Are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures fill the gap made by multiple missing teeth. Like full dentures, they are a form of dental prosthetic meant to look like natural teeth, providing you with a cosmetic solution as well as offering a solid chewing surface. Partial dentures help to protect your natural teeth by reducing the stress put on them by daily use as well as holding teeth in position after tooth loss.

Partial Dentures vs Bridges

A dental bridge is sometimes called a “fixed partial denture.” Unlike removable dentures, where replacement teeth are attached to a gum-colored acrylic base, a dental bridge is anchored permanently in place. Generally, they are attached to natural teeth on either side of the gap, but other arrangements are available as well.

Both partial dentures and bridges have their own benefits and drawbacks. Traditional removable dentures are often the most affordable solution; however, bridges can look more natural and require less special upkeep.

What Option is Best for You?

Your dentist can help you choose the best tooth replacement option for your individual needs, including your budget and the state of your overall dental health. Contact Fife Dental Care today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fife and discuss your options!
