Dental trauma from an accident or collision can account for about three million lost or broken teeth every year. While we strive to preserve a knocked-out tooth with dental care when possible, many times tooth loss results in the need to place a dental restoration in order to repair the damage.
If you have several missing teeth, you may need to receive a partial denture to regain proper oral function and improve your smile.
Dr. Casey Witty and our team are pleased to provide a variety of options for tooth replacement to ensure your smile is restored in a way that fits your needs and preferences. Patients who don’t prefer receiving dental implants often find that a custom partial denture effectively restores their smiles.
A partial is a type of denture that fills a section of the mouth that has lost several but not all teeth. It is made up of a pink base that mimics the look of the gums and is set with a few artificial teeth. Interlocking wires may be used to keep the appliance remain in place, though it is removable if needed.
We invite you to contact Witty Family and Cosmetic Dentistry at 859-881-4633 today to arrange an appointment with our dentist and discuss whether you would benefit from partial dentures in Nicholasville, Kentucky.
