If your tooth loss is not so advanced as to require full dentures, then partials may be the perfect tooth replacement solution for you at Burkburnett Family Dental. Dr. Kyle Clark and his dental team have provided hundreds of people in and around Burkburnett with partial dentures, and this tooth replacement option is one of the most affordable ones available today.
Partial dentures (“flippers”) rest on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes, Dr. Clark must place dental crowns on some of your natural teeth to anchor the new set of teeth. Sometimes, your flippers have clasps that help them adhere to your teeth for support. You may also have heard about partials called “snap-on” dentures.
These tooth replacements are artificial replacements that replace the missing teeth but are still supported by remaining teeth and surrounding tissues. You’d likely not qualify for partial prosthetics if you miss many teeth. Still, Dr. Clark won’t know what tooth replacement option is best for you until he performs a comprehensive evaluation and discusses your desired results.
While partials are usually removable, some can also be fixed or permanently attached; fixed partials are also called dental bridges.
Choosing the Right Dentures for You
When it comes to dental prostheses, one size does not fit all. Dr. Clark and his team at Burkburnett Family Dental offer personalized consultations to help you decide the best type of tooth replacement for your specific needs. Factors like your lifestyle, the condition of your remaining teeth, and your budget are all considered. Our aim is to provide you with dentures that restore your smile, confidence, and quality of life.
