Partial dentures are the best and cost-effective option for those who are looking to replace their decayed or missing teeth with durable and natural-looking dentures. They feel and function like your original teeth. Partial dentures prevent tooth decay, gum infection, and the shifting of the natural teeth while enhancing your smile and confidence. They also keep the underlying structures of your mouth healthy.
Read on to learn more about what Dr. Henry Babichenko of European Denture Center has to say about partial dentures and why they are the best alternative for natural teeth.
Partial Dentures Are Cost-Effective
Dr. Henry Babichenko says, “Partial denture is the best option if you have lost one or more natural teeth and do not want to replace it with expensive alternatives such as an implant or a bridge.”
Partial Dentures Prevent Damages to Natural Teeth
“You need to restore your missing teeth with partial dentures as soon as possible. Otherwise, the space created between your existing teeth allows your surrounding teeth to drift into that area. This is referred to as the Domino Effect. If space is present, the bone deteriorates, and the surrounding natural teeth begin to shake. If you do not have a partial denture and you bite down using your natural tooth, your tooth ligament stretches, and makes your tooth mobile”, Dr. Henry says.
Partial dentures help stabilize the remaining natural teeth by keeping their ligaments healthy and decreasing the chance of unusual movement.
Partial Dentures Are Customized to Fit the Natural Oral Structure
Partial dentures can be custom-made to ensure proper fit, comfort, and color of your natural teeth. “This design is known as a bio-ergonomic design,” Dr. Henry says. Making custom partial dentures involves following the existing patterns of tissues in a client’s natural oral structure. This helps to design the perfect partial dentures that fit to ensure the most natural look and bite.
Partial Dentures Last Long with Denture Care
On average, partial dentures can last several years with proper denture care and maintenance. “Partial dentures created from chromium cobalt are designed using the same material as artificial hips, and are, therefore, extremely light and strong,” says Dr. Henry.
