If you’ve lost multiple teeth in one area of your mouth, it can severely limit your ability to chew and process food. Sometimes Dr. Drs. Nichols and Cicmanec can restore these missing teeth with oral surgeries and dental implants. However, if you aren’t comfortable with the invasiveness of these treatment, they might recommend fitting you for a custom partial denture.
Dr. Drs. Nichols and Cicmanec will start the process of fitting you for the partial by examining the area to make sure the surrounding teeth are healthy and strong. If any other teeth have been compromised by tooth decay or periodontal disease, they might recommend having them extracted and included in the final partial.
Dr. Drs. Nichols and Cicmanec 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 in the void between the two neighboring teeth.
While the partial is custom designed to fit tightly, you might also want to use denture adhesive. This will help hold the partial firmly in place as well as block out any food particles.
