Partial Dentures in Brooksville, Tampa, Lakeland, Winter Haven, Spring Hill, & Surrounding Areas
Partial dentures are a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth. When you go to a Dental Associates dentist for an oral exam, the dentist will check your mouth for overall oral health to see if there is any evidence of gum disease and make note of any teeth that are beyond repair, such as injured ones or those with root problems caused by infections. The dentist will remove any problem teeth to prepare for making the partial dentures.
The next thing done is to prepare the mouth for the fitting of a partial denture. Sometimes this takes time to wear a retainer or braces to move the natural teeth into their correct position. When the remaining natural teeth are in the proper positions, the dentist takes a mold of the teeth. A custom dental laboratory uses this mold to create the partial dentures. The lab takes care that the partial dentures will fit properly by using the mold for guidance.
Dental Associates also offers the following dental services:
Once they are ready, the dentist will instruct you how to put then in and take them out, how long to wear them, and how to take care of them. At first, you will want to wear them all the time. Then after a short time you will return for a checkup to make sure, the partial dentures are fitting properly and do not cause any pain. Fine tuning adjustments that are necessary happen at that time. After that, you can take the partial dentures out at night when sleeping. Make an appointment for an oral exam to consult with your dentist about partial dentures.
