Removable Partial Dentures in Newport News, Virginia

Removable partial dentures can be fabricated when a patient is missing some, but not all, teeth. Some of the remaining teeth are used to anchor and support the partial denture. Because of this it is important to access the strength of the remaining teeth that the partial denture will abut to.

In order for a partial denture to be stable it needs to span across the entire arch (meaning from right to left side). Dr. Bucci believes strongly that every partial denture needs to be made with a metal base to maximize stability. Metal clasps are incorporated into the metal framework to hold the partial in place. If the clasps interfere with esthetics, then there are alternatives in making the clasps either hidden or removed entirely.
