Drs. Joe McIntyre and Dan Whiting at Smiles for Life Dental Care offer high-quality restorations that complete your smile and balance your bite.
Understanding Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are designed to fill in the gaps in your smile while comfortably fitting around your teeth.
Patients who have lost multiple teeth due to trauma, decay, or disease will need a dental restoration to fill the gaps in their smile. A popular, affordable option is a traditional partial denture. Made of acrylic, these removable restorations are secured in place with metal clasps attached to adjacent teeth. In certain cases, this appliance may also be attached to dental implants.
If you do not opt for dental implants, the teeth adjacent to the gap will help to anchor the partial denture. As such, any decay or defects affecting these teeth will need to first be addressed with appropriate treatment.
Advantages of Partial Dentures
As a restoration designed to replace multiple teeth, traditional partial dentures confer a number of notable benefits, such as:

Candidacy for Partial Dentures
Most patients missing multiple teeth on their upper or lower dental arch can qualify for a partial denture. Your doctor will review your oral and medical health in order to determine the most conservative method of treatment. In some cases, they may recommend other treatments before a denture.
Patients with one missing tooth, for example, are generally better suited to a traditional bridge or implant-supported dental crown. Some patients may need badly damaged teeth removed while others may have teeth salvaged with another restorative treatment, such as a dental filling. Together, you and your dentist can create a treatment plan that takes into account your oral health, budget, and lifestyle.
Creating Your Partial Denture
After you have received any necessary preparatory treatments, your doctor can take detailed images of your teeth and gums. Using this information, the lab will fabricate your customized device, a process which usually takes a few weeks.
When the prosthetic is ready, you can return to have the partial denture placed. At this time, your dentist will ensure that the device fits in aesthetically with your natural smile and complements your bite patterns to avoid jaw pain and other oral health concerns.

When I embarked on my journey to find the right dental implant service, I initially gravitated towards the two prominent national brands in the field. However, my search took an unexpected and incredibly satisfying turn when I decided to explore the offerings of a local implant provider. Little did I know that this local gem would redefine my expectations of what a top-notch implant service should be like. Here's why my experience with them was nothing short of extraordinary: Meticulous Charting of Teeth and Gums: ★★★★★ One of the first things that set this local provider apart from the national giants was their unwavering commitment to precision and detail. While the big names seemed more focused on the implant procedure itself, this local gem took the time to meticulously chart the condition of my teeth and gums. This attention to detail ensured that my implant procedure was tailored to my specific needs and challenges. It was clear that they understood the importance of a solid foundation for the success of the implants. Infection Prevention Education: ★★★★★ Implant surgery is not without its risks, and one of the key concerns is the possibility of infection. What truly impressed me was the depth of information and guidance this local provider offered regarding infection prevention. They didn't just gloss over this critical aspect; they took the time to discuss the infection possibilities associated with dental implants and, more importantly, outlined a comprehensive plan to combat and mitigate such conditions. Their proactive approach to ensuring patient safety was truly reassuring. First-Year Implant Supervision: ★★★★★ Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of my experience with this local implant provider was their commitment to the long-term success of my dental implants. While the national brands seemed content with the implant procedure itself, this local provider went above and beyond by offering required supervision for the first year following the implant surgery. This level of aftercare and ongoing support was simply unparalleled and gave me peace of mind knowing that my oral health was in capable hands. In conclusion, my exploration journey for dental implants took an unexpected turn when I discovered this exceptional local implant provider. Their dedication to detail, infection prevention, and post-surgery care were nothing short of outstanding. They not only surpassed the standards set by the national brands but also redefined my expectations of what a truly exceptional implant service should encompass. If you're in search of dental implants and want an experience that goes above and beyond, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this local gem a visit. They've certainly earned my trust and gratitude.

Morgan is the best! I hadn’t been to the dentist in 10+ years and was nervous even though I’d always been a fan of the dentist (weird I know).
