What are partial implants?
Updated: 11/13/2012 6:28:14 PM

What are partial implants?  When people think of dentures, they may imagine an elderly person with a mouthful of fake chompers. However, it's not just older people who have dentures, and not everyone who has them has a full set. Recently, the Victoria Advocate published an article explaining what partial dentures are and how they can help people improve their dental health.

According to the news source, people who have teeth missing can get a partial denture. These have the same metal framework of regular dentures, but only contain a few fake teeth rather than the full set. The more natural teeth a person has, then the better the partial denture will fit. These are custom made, so they will only fit the person they have been designed for.

Partial dentures are a good option for people who are missing some teeth and do not have the funds to care for implants.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that people who are missing teeth may have poor nutrition because there are many crunchy fruits and vegetables that they may not be able to eat. This is why it's important for people to replace missing teeth with implants or dentures.
