Partial Dentures From Your Dentist in Scarborough
If you’re reluctant to smile, laugh, or even speak because of tooth loss, at EastSide Family Dental in Scarborough, we’d love to help you regain a smile you can feel confident in sharing.
What are partial dentures?
Simply put, these prosthetic options are removable replacement teeth that take the place of one or more missing teeth. Custom-made to fit your mouth, partial dentures are secured either by clasps that wrap around one or more surrounding teeth, or by an optimal fit that molds to the surrounding teeth, bone, and gum ridges.
What are the benefits of wearing a partial denture?
Not only do patients who utilize this dental appliance improve their diets and overall nutritional intake, they also can experience benefits to their facial appearance. Losing one or more teeth can cause a “sunken look” that ages a patient, and wearing a denture can rejuvenate their appearance, making them look years younger!
Are there special cleaning instructions for partial dentures?
Dentures should be soaked and cleaned at least once daily with a non-abrasive denture cleanser and a soft-bristled toothbrush. You should also gently wipe your gums with a clean, damp washcloth to remove any bacteria that finds it way under your denture. As your dentist in Scarborough, we will ensure that we advise you on how to properly clean your denture and surrounding teeth, and will answer any care-related questions you may have.
