When people lose teeth to decay, injury or gum disease, they should seek missing teeth replacement as soon as possible to avoid:
A skilled cosmetic and restorative dentist can examine your mouth, take x-rays and suggest tooth replacement options to deliver a natural look and improved oral health and function, too.
Partial dentures are constructed on a light metal frame with tooth- and gum-colored acrylic. Patients attach them to teeth surrounding the gap via metal clasps. Removable and light, “partials” help people enjoy good chewing and great aesthetics.

Partial dentures without any metals are also available in certain situations.

While there’s nothing like a full set of natural teeth, Dr. Brian, Dr. Katherine and Dr. Hwang encourage their patients that life with Cumming, GA dentures will work just fine. After receiving new dentures, patients can expect a period of adjustment while facial muscles adjust to speaking and eating with the appliance. Plus, patients can experience sore spots and some minor discomfort at first, but the dentists adjust full and partial dentures to optimize fit, function and comfort.
Denture patients must practice good oral hygiene at home, rinsing their dentures after eating and brushing with a quality denture paste. Also, individuals should carefully brush gums, tongue, hard palate and cheeks gently to remove plaque, freshen breath and stimulate circulation. With attention to hygiene and routine dental exams, dentures last a decade or more.
