A partial denture is an easy way to fill out your smile.

A full smile does more than make you look good, although it does do that. Not only can missing teeth make you feel self-conscious, they can also give your mouth a sunken appearance and make you look older than you actually are. But to speak and eat properly, you really do need a complete set of teeth. While many replace their missing teeth with implants, they may not work well for everyone. If this is the case for you, you may want to talk to Dr. Kimberly Fee about a partial denture in Prescott, Arizona. Partial dentures can replace one or more missing teeth and give you the healthy and attractive smile you want.
Our office offers removable partial dentures using a metal frame, or flexible Valplast® dentures.

Brushing your gums removes the plaque and bacteria that have built up on them and stimulates the blood flow to keep your gums healthy. You should continue to see the dentist for your regular cleanings and exams. You also need to clean your dentures at least once a day. You can do this using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste formulated for dentures. We will also talk with you about how to adjust to life with dentures and will adjust them for you if they are causing you pain or pressure.
