Partial dentures in Port Coquitlam can help you meet new people. How? When you meet someone new, the first thing they’ll notice about you is your smile. Perhaps without realizing it, they’ll notice your smile’s colour, alignment, and continuity. Your new acquaintances will make their first impressions of you based on your smile.
If your smile contains gaps from missing teeth, you may feel self-conscious around new people. You may not put in effort to make new friends because you’re afraid they’ll judge you poorly based on your smile. With partial dentures, you can revive your smile, feel more confident, and chew easily again. Burke Mountain Denture Clinic offers partial dentures to people of all ages, no matter your situation. We can evaluate your mouth and see if you'd make a good candidate for partial dentures in Port Coquitlam.
When most people think of dentures, they think of large sets of prosthetic teeth that replace every single tooth in the mouth. However, 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.
At Burke Mountain Denture Clinic, we carry three partial denture options so you can get the perfect fit for your needs:
Metal-free, flexible resin
Each type of partial denture provides an adequate replacement for missing teeth. To determine which type will work best for your situation and needs, you'll need a dentist to examine your remaining teeth. Let us know if you don't already have a dentist so we can refer you to one. 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. We offer emergency denture repairs in our Port Coquitlam denture clinic for your convenience and peace of mind.
