If existing teeth are healthy and in good condition, a full denture may not be necessary. Instead, you may be a great candidate for a removable partial denture. Dr. Tim Chapel, DDS will examine the status of your existing teeth, gums, and bone structures to ensure they can sustain a partial.
In many cases, an implant may be recommended to secure a partial in place. This eliminates the need for clasps and allows the partial denture to absorb more of the bite force thus protecting your natural teeth.
