A severe dental trauma or complications from chronic cavities can sometimes result in the loss of multiple teeth in one area of your mouth. This can immediately hamper your overall oral function and alter your appearance, which can have a negative impact on your quality of life.
If you are uncomfortable with the oral surgery associated with a dental implant restoration, Dr. Troy L. Sargent might recommend fitting you for a partial denture. This is a small version of a complete denture designed to fit into the void left by your missing teeth.
After assessing the general health of the neighboring teeth, Dr. Troy L. Sargent will make an impression of the area. It will be sent to a dental lab to guide their technicians in creating your dentures.
The final dental appliance will fit tightly with the structure of your gums. Yet you might still want to apply a little denture adhesive for an extra secure hold. It can also help to block out stray food particles from getting between the base of the dentures and your gums.
