Dental Work & Bonding in Winston-Salem, NC
A removable partial denture is designed specifically to meet the needs of the patient and can replace one or more missing teeth. A natural appearance and speech clarity is restored along with the ability to eat more efficiently.
Partial Denture Types and Materials
Partial dentures are created out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic. A patient’s specific needs and anatomy dictate the design of the partial denture and every effort is made to construct a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral tissues.
Drs. John P. Pruitt, David E. Miller, Robert P. Stowe, Jason M. Steinbicker, or L. Beth Link Taylor will design your partial denture so that the chewing forces are evenly distributed over the entire surface are of the remaining teeth and soft tissues.
Metal partials are generally preferred as they are structurally superior. They are thinner and more hygienic than an acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are often used as a transitional or temporary partial but advances in materials have made them a great permanent option as well. Our highly trained dentists at Winston Smiles will consult with you to determine the appropriate partial for your situation.
