A Removable Partial Can Replace the Presence of Multiple Missing Teeth

If you’ve had multiple teeth knocked out, extracted, or lost to tooth decay, it can significantly impede your ability to chew your food. One way to replace the function and presence of multiple missing teeth without invasive procedures is to have your dentist, Dr. Michael McBride, fit you for a removable partial denture in San Marcos, California.

This is essentially an abbreviated form of removable dentures that fits in the area where the other teeth are missing.

Your dentist will examine the area to make sure all of the surrounding teeth are healthy and strong. If any of the teeth in the area are also compromised by tooth decay or periodontal disease, he might recommend having them extracted and added to the partial.

Your dentist will then create a detailed impression of the area, including the corresponding teeth in your bite pattern. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where your partial will be made to fit perfectly into the void between the two neighboring teeth.

Even though the partial will fit securely on its own, many people with a partial like to use denture adhesive. Not only does it provide an extra-secure hold, but it also helps block out stray food particles.

If you have lost multiple teeth and you’re interested in a partial, you should call 760-471-1003 to schedule an appointment at McBride Dental.
