Removable Partial Dentures in Spring Hill
Find the Right Denture Following Tooth Loss
Following tooth loss, you may wonder what types of dentures are available, how they work, and whether they are right for you. At Dentistry by Design, we provide state-of-the-art denture fitting and fabrication services to suit your needs. Removable partial dentures are one such option.
With a removable partial denture, replacement teeth are attached to a gum-colored plastic base, with a framework and clasps or precision attachments that fix the denture into place. The specific style and method of attachment used may vary on a case by case basis, so we recommend coming in for a consultation to find out which type may work best for you. Removable partial dentures are often more cost-effective and less invasive than permanent dentures, but they may not last as long.

Advantages/Disadvantages of Removable Partial Dentures
According to a study published in The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, approximately 43% of adults in the U.S. over the age of 65 are missing 6 or more teeth. Dentures can offer a functional and aesthetic way of replacing these lost teeth, and removable partial dentures are an option to consider.
Removable partial dentures offer the following advantages and disadvantages:
- Removable partial dentures typically cost less than dental implants.
- Removable partial dentures do not require oral surgery, unlike implants, which are placed surgically.
- Removable partial dentures may have a slightly less natural appearance than implants.
- Over time, the bone underneath missing teeth may weaken and shrink.
Of course, any important decision regarding your dental care should be made only after you receive a full consultation and information from a trusted professional.
