Partial Dentures

Award-Winning Ventura Dentist

When most people think of dentures, they envision a full set of teeth sitting in a glass of water each night, then being carefully replaced the next morning. Not everyone, however, needs a complete set of dentures. Trauma, poor hygiene, and extraction can all happen to just one or even several teeth and presents the need for partial dentures.

Our office specializes in partial dentures and is always concerned about what would best serve our clients' needs. We exercise a high level of skill in every form of treatment offered. Since our Ventura dentists began practicing in 1991, we've helped countless individuals achieve their deserved smile.

Why would I need partial dentures?

It is not uncommon to have a few missing teeth, rather than a whole mouthful. We often hear of patients who say that they don't mind living with the gaps, but this is not encouraged. Failing to replace missing teeth can cause gum disease and impact the position of your other teeth. This is why partial dentures are so popular, and beneficial, in today's society.

There are several different styles of partial dentures:

  • Fixed
  • Removable
  • Cast metal
  • Flexible
  • Acrylic

Whether you would benefit from fixed or removable is usually up to the discretion of your dentist, but many patients are given the option to choose the material they desire. Cast metal is known for its comfortable fit and sleek appearance. Flexible partial dentures also offer a natural fit and require extra time to develop. Acrylic dentures are the most affordable option but can end up feeling bulky.

Regardless of the style you choose, partial dentures can help keep your mouth healthy for years down the line. You will find that partial dentures make it easier to speak and keep the shape of your mouth from shifting unnecessarily.

At Mark Weitzman, D.D.S., we take great pride in the level of service we provide our clients with. Our clients walk away with peace of mind and confidence in their smile. Call our Ventura dentist today to learn more about how we can help you!
