But you don’t have to feel that way! At Nicholas Dose, DMD, we believe that everyone deserves a healthy smile that they can wear confidently. That is why we work so hard to find the right treatment options for our patients, and take the time to ensure the procedure is done correctly the first time around. If you are looking for a solution for missing teeth, consider coming in and speaking with us about your potential options! Partial dentures, for example, are a great option for many people.

Advantages of Partial Dentures

One of the main advantages when it comes to partial dentures is the non-invasive form of the treatment. These dentures can simply be slid into place and then removed again when you are finished using them. They do not require anything to be inserted into your gum itself in order to work. Partial dentures also tend to be more affordable than certain other kinds of procedures designed to replace missing teeth. They can also work to help maintain the structural integrity of your jaw and your mouth rather than allowing your remaining teeth to potentially shift. All in all, they are good options for someone hoping to complete their smile once more, but who would prefer to avoid spending a lot of money or undergoing a surgical procedure.

Disadvantages of Partial Dentures

Sometimes wearing dentures takes some time and practice to perfect. You might find yourself feeling a bit odd at first, but give yourself time to adjust. If your partial dentures do not seem to fit correctly and you have trouble getting them into place, you should make an appointment to come in and see us! We are always happy to help adjust your dentures and ensure that you are satisfied with your results.
