At Ebner Family Dentistry we are able to help you achieve a beautiful smile. We take our time when presenting treatment plans so that you know all treatment alternatives. Just because you have lost teeth in the past doesn’t mean your future has to suffer. We can discuss what treatment options best fit your needs, including the possibility of partial dentures.
Types of Partial Dentures
- Fixed partial denture / bridge
A fixed partial denture is also known as a bridge. It is something that is used to replace missing teeth on patients that may have only a few teeth missing. We use the existing teeth in front of and behind the space as anchors to suspend a false tooth. The bridge is cemented on to those adjacent teeth and as such, it is not something you take in and out.
- Removable partial denture
A removable partial denture is an appliance that you take in and out just as you would a traditional complete denture. They serve to replace missing teeth and can be a more cost-effective approach compared to the fixed partial denture or implants.
