What Partial Dentures Can Do For Your Smile

Partial Dentures

Dr. Roderick A. Garcia is a Cosmetic and Family Dentist that has practiced dentistry since 1983. Dr. Garcia is a Graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston and has provided a variety of dental services for his patients including Partial Dentures.

Partial Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth in the upper and lower jaw.

Removable Partial Dentures are held in place by clasping (hooking around) existing teeth with either a metal or nylon clasp.

Removable Partial Dentures can replace one or more missing teeth. The replacement teeth are either acrylic or porcelain.

The materials used for the removable partial denture can vary for example they can be made of flexible nylon, acrylic, or metal with acrylic. The design and materials for the removable partial denture will be determined by the patients restorative need, cosmetic concerns, age of the patient, and length of time the patient will be wearing the removable partial denture.

The experience and knowledge of the Dentist is very important in the design of the removable partial denture as bite forces and how to keep the partial stable must be applied and come into play as the removable partial denture is engineered
