Occasionally a patient who has suffered from rampant tooth decay come in with multiple teeth decayed beyond recovery. This can result in the loss of several important teeth in the area, requiring a restorative treatment to restore their smile to full function.

If you are in a situation like this, Dr. Nathaniel Chan may recommend extracting the dying teeth and replacing them with a partial denture to restore your smile. Unlike full dentures, these are designed to replace only a few teeth instead of all of them.

Our dentist will examine your mouth and the affected area to determine the health of the surrounding teeth. He will determine if they are healthy enough to be used to secure the denture. If not, he may recommend extracting them as well.

One the area to receive the denture has been properly prepared, Dr. Nathaniel Chan will make a detailed impression of the area, from the gums to the surrounding teeth to the opposing teeth. This will let the dental lab construct the denture to function perfectly.

If you have lost multiple teeth in one part of your mouth, you should call Quincy Center Dental Associates in Quincy, Massachusetts, at 617-934-4914 to see if you’re a good candidate for a partial denture.
