Partial Denture Problems

At the end of five years, only forty percent of partial denture wearers are still wearing the partial denture made for them. Of those wearing a partial denture, fifty percent chew better without it. Those patients still wearing partial dentures are all losing bone. Partial dentures exert pressure on the gum and bone causing bone loss; bone loss makes the partial even more difficult to wear.

Dental Bone Loss

Even though partial dentures can cause more tooth loss, some dentists still recommend them; many will agree to produce them at the patient's request. They of course mean well, and often a partial denture is not the first choice recommended, but patients may insist because of the lower cost.

At Gilreath Dental Associates, we offer permanent and effective solutions using dental implants for patients who are missing a tooth or teeth. We are proud to offer advanced solutions that enable patients to eat the foods they love, and speak, smile and laugh with confidence.
