If you’ve lost multiple teeth in one part of your mouth, it can severely compromise the full function of your mouth and affect the quality of your life. In a situation like this, your dentist, Dr. Frank Russomanno, Jr., might recommend having these teeth restored with a removable partial denture.
A partial denture is like an abbreviated form of dentures that are designed to fit snugly into the gap of your smile.
At the first appointment, Dr. Frank Russomanno, Jr. will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth. If there are any neighboring teeth that have been compromised by severe tooth decay issues, they might recommend having them extracted as a preemptive measure.
When you’re ready, your dentist will take an impression of the area. This will be sent to the dental lab where your new partial is created.
Dr. Frank Russomanno, Jr. will perform the initial installation of your new partial once the dental lab has completed it. Many people with a partial like to use denture adhesives to secure it in place and help block out food particles.
