Having teeth missing from your mouth can really mess with your quality of life, making it harder to eat, speak, and even changing your face shape. Not to mention that missing teeth can make you feel embarrassed about showing your smile. Getting dentures, whether full or partial, can restore your smile.
Partial dentures need a slightly different prep than full dentures. Our dentist will ensure the nearby teeth are healthy and strong because they will help support the denture. If they aren’t strong, he’ll probably recommend that the teeth get extracted and added to the denture.
After the part of your mouth that will get the denture is prepped, Dr. Gary Cappelletti is going to take an imprint of it. The casting will include any surrounding teeth, the gums, and any opposing teeth. This cast will be sent to a lab where the denture will be made.
The technician will use the cast to made the foundation of your dentures so they will be comfortable in your mouth. Once you have them, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite foods as you always did.
