If severe tooth decay or oral injury has caused you to lose multiple teeth in one specific area of your mouth, it can have a serious negative impact on your quality of life. In a case like this, your dentist, Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor, can often restore the function of these teeth by fitting you for a custom partial denture. This appliance is an abbreviated form of dentures that is custom designed to fit into the void that was left by multiple missing teeth.
Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor will start the treatment by performing a thorough examination of your mouth and taking a few X-rays. This helps your dentist assess the overall health of your mouth and identify any other problematic teeth that need to be addressed. If she finds any other compromised teeth, she might need to be repaired or extracted as well.
Then, she will cast a detailed impression of the void and any other relevant teeth. This impression will be sent to the dental lab where your new partial will be custom made.
Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor will call you back into Skyline Dental Associates for a short second appointment when your partial is ready. Many people with a partial find that a little extra denture adhesive will help secure it in place and block out stray food particles.
