Understanding Partial Dentures
Dentures are used to replace teeth that have been knocked out or are unable to be replaced. Partial dentures are used to replace a few teeth but not a full row. In this article, we are going to learn a little bit more about partial dentures.
The first thing that is important to note about partial dentures is that in order to be able to receive them, you need to have a row of healthy teeth. The reason for this is that the dentures will use healthy teeth for support.
Partial dentures are also removable, making it important for them to be cleaned frequently. If you do not clean your dentures often, you have an increased risk for decay or cavities. A good habit to get into would be wearing the dentures all day and then taking them off at night.
There are different kinds of partial dentures, all with different functions. If you think that partial dentures might be right for you, talk to your dentist. If your dentist recommends the dentures then it’s important that you have all of the information that you need. You can remember these helpful tips during the process to ensure it goes smoothly.
