An important step in maintaining a healthy smile is to replace missing teeth.

When teeth are missing, the remaining ones can change position, drifting into the surrounding space.  Teeth that are out of position can damage tissues in the mouth.  In addition, it may be difficult to clean thoroughly between crooked teeth.  As a result, you run the risk of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to the loss of additional teeth.

A Removable partial denture fills in the space created by missing teeth and fills out your smile.  A partial denture may improve speech and prevent a sagging face by providing support for lips and cheeks.
