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. Timothy B. Chatterley 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.

Dr. Timothy B. Chatterley 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.

After the area has been prepared, our dentist will take a detailed casting of it and the surrounding teeth, including the opposing teeth. This casting will then be sent to a dental lab where your partial denture will be made to replace your lost teeth perfectly.

If you have lost multiple teeth in one part of your mouth, you should call Bright Smiles Dental in Casselberry, Florida, at 407-628-1066 to see if you’re a good candidate for a partial denture.
