Suffering a hard blow to the face or other form or oral trauma can sometimes cause so much damage to teeth and the sockets that it results in multiple tooth loss. While a dental implant fitted with a bridge can restore these teeth, some people are put off by the invasiveness of the treatment. In a situation like this, Dr. Pooja Goel might recommend restoring the knocked-out teeth with a partial denture.
For all intents and purposes, this piece of dental work is an abbreviated form of removable dentures that fits in the area where the teeth are missing.
Dr. Pooja Goel will examine the area to make sure the surrounding teeth are healthy and strong. If any of the teeth in the area have been compromised, she might recommend having them extracted and added to the partial.
Dr. Pooja Goel and her dental technicians will then create a detailed impression of the area, including the corresponding teeth in your bite pattern. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where your partial will be made to fit perfectly into the void between the two neighboring teeth.
While the partial will fit securely of its own accord, you might still want to use denture adhesive. Not only does it provide an extra-secure hold, but it also helps block out stray food particles.
