We offer partial dentures in Scottsdale, Arizona, to replace the few teeth you are missing with a removable, custom-made oral appliance.
Partial dentures are made to replace your teeth with fake teeth that are attached to a pink or gum-colored base. If needed, Dr. Kristopher Alpers will also add a metal framework to hold the denture in place. These partial dentures can be used when you have one or more natural teeth remaining in the upper or lower jaw. This option not only replaces multiple teeth, but it also has the ability of keeping the natural teeth in place. Oftentimes, when someone refrains from using dentures, implants, or bridges, the natural teeth tend to drift and slide out of place because of all of the available room in the mouth.
The removable partial denture is an appliance that has internal attachments to hold it in place and is a very natural-looking restoration. When deciding to install partial dentures at Alpers Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we would like to tell you beforehand that the dentures might take a little time to get familiar with. But, with a little bit of practice, you will be eating and speaking normally in no time!
