Chronic gum disease problems can lead to a loss of healthy bone structure in your mouth. Along with periodontal complications, this could weaken the roots of your teeth and potentially lead to multiple cases of tooth loss.
In a situation like this, the oral care specialists at Tara Hills Dental might recommend fitting you for a custom partial denture. This is an even more likely treatment plan if there is not sufficient bone structure remaining to restore the lost teeth with a dental implant.
A partial denture is essentially a smaller form of a complete denture. It will be created in a professional dental lab to mimic the original missing teeth. Some partial dentures also include small oral hardware components to help secure a tight relationship with the neighboring teeth and the underlying gums.
Once installed in your mouth it will restore your basic ability to chew food.
The removable dental appliance will be designed to fit tight on its own. Yet many people with a partial appreciate a little denture adhesive for a little extra secure hold and its ability to help block out food particles.
