As its name implies, a partial denture does not replace a whole arch of lost teeth. Rather, it fits around the remaining existing teeth to fill in the empty spaces. Small metal clips help a partial denture to stay in place.

The denture process is fairly straightforward. First, our team evaluates your candidacy for the treatment. Then, we do any necessary preparatory work (for example, extractions or gum disease treatment).

When you come to our office to pick it up, we will give you some coaching on how to get the most out of it.
