Dentures can come in many shapes and sizes depending upon your specific needs. Partial dentures replace one tooth or smaller sections of teeth so you can preserve your remaining teeth and prevent jaw issues. Partial dentures fill in any gaps in your teeth, giving you a full smile and restoring your mouth's function. Partial dentures in Port Coquitlam are important to preserving your smile because gaps allow teeth to drift out of alignment, and misalignment can cause bone loss, an uneven bite, and even jaw problems.
Be aware that partial dentures may require adjustments and repairs as your jaw bone shrinks, the denture clasps get loose from normal wear-and-tear, or your dentures get chipped or cracked. You should never, ever, try to adjust your partial dentures yourself.
