Removable Partial Dentures

Many people experience tooth loss at some point in their life, whether it is due to genetics, decay, traumatic injury, or other issues. If you are missing one or more teeth, it is important to know that you have options when it comes to replacing them. Removable partial dentures are one of several tooth replacement options offered at Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry in Dunedin, FL.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They contain natural-looking false teeth that are set in a resin that is the color of your gums and are typically held in place by attaching to your existing teeth with clasps for a secure fit. Partial dentures have many benefits for patients who have suffered tooth loss:

  • They restore the function of your lost teeth so you can eat your favorite foods again
  • Partial dentures are custom designed by Dr. Lepore to look completely natural so you can feel confident about your smile again
  • They prevent your existing teeth from shifting within your mouth, which can cause issues with your bite, uneven wear and tear, and bacterial overgrowth
  • Removable partial dentures can be fully taken out so that they are easy to clean and take care of
  • They are an affordable option for replacing lost teeth

The process for getting partial dentures

The first step in any dental restoration is a thorough evaluation and consultation with Dr. Lepore so you can discuss the best options for your specific needs and feel confident about your choice. If you decide to get partial dentures, we will take impressions of your mouth so that your denture will have an optimal fit. It is important to note that several appointments are needed to ensure a well-fitting removable partial denture. Dr. Lepore and his team will go over each of these steps, custom to your unique needs. Then, the laboratory will create your partial denture based on the specifications that Dr. Lepore gives them, such as the size and shape of the teeth. Once your denture is ready, we will have you come in to try on the denture and will adjust it as needed. In some cases, you will try on a mock-up of the denture to ensure it fits and looks the way you want before the final denture is made.
