If you have a bad habit of putting off your regularly scheduled dental checkups at Mowry Dental undiagnosed cavities can continue to worsen. If the core of multiple teeth are severely affected by untreated tooth decay it could lead to the loss of several teeth in one area of your mouth.
To safely and effectively restore the natural function of your mouth, Dr. Thi Hoang and her associates might recommend fitting you for a removable partial denture.
This type of dental appliance will be designed to mimic the appearance and function of the missing teeth. Some units also include additional features to temporarily marry them with the neighboring natural teeth while also allowing it to fit snugly with your existing gum structure.
Still some denture wearers like to include a little denture adhesive to help firmly bond it in place and reduce your chances of having food particles infiltrate the base.
When you uninstall the partial denture each night you need to thoroughly rinse it and brush it with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste. Make sure to also brush around any hardware components to free all traces of plaque.
