Dentures (Partial and complete) We make complete dentures that won't slip; locked-in with mini-implants if desired. Our partial dentures are designed according to each patient's needs and they are made to be sturdy by a reputable and quality laboratory with whom we worked side by side. A removable partial denture replace multiple missing teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. This replacement of missing teeth is necessary in order to restore your mouth to its original functioning condition and maintain normal facial contour. If a condition of missing teeth is left untreated, the remaining teeth may drift. Drifting teeth can lead to a bad occlusion (bite), additional decay and possible gum and bone problem. Each partial denture is precisely made to fit an individual's unique situation. It is designed to be removable. The partial denture is held in place with clasps that are comfortably fit around a select few of your remaining teeth. A partial denture is cosmetically design to hide all metal whenever possible. The artificial teeth and gums are colored to match an individual's natural teeth and gums.
