Are Partial Dentures Right For You?

When faced with tooth loss, some people may think getting full dentures is their only option. But in some cases, partial dentures could be just as effective.

Key takeaways:

  • Partial dentures can be an option if you’re only missing one or a few teeth.
  • They can also work as a temporary solution while other options are being considered.
  • You could be a candidate as long as you have enough supporting bone left.

You may also benefit from implants and bridges. Ask your dentist about the most suitable restoration options.
