Partial Dentures: Restoring Smiles in Augusta, Georgia


At Augusta Family Dental, we recognize the importance of restoring your smile and confidence. Our comprehensive partial denture solutions cater to the unique needs of our patients in Augusta, ensuring they regain their ability to eat, speak, and smile comfortably.


Understanding Partial Dentures:


Partial dental dentures are custom-made dental appliances designed to replace one or more missing teeth. Unlike full dentures, which replace an entire dental arch, partial dentures are utilized when some natural teeth remain. They consist of a gum-colored acrylic base with artificial teeth attached, secured in place by clasps or precision attachments that affix to the existing natural teeth.


Distinguishing Features:


    • Removability: Unlike dental bridges, which are fixed, partial dentures are removable, offering ease of cleaning and maintenance.

    • Affordability: Partial dentures provide an affordable and effective solution for individuals with multiple missing teeth while preserving existing healthy teeth.


Types of Partial Dentures: Finding the Perfect Fit


At Augusta Family Dental, we understand the importance of finding the right partial denture solution for your unique needs. Here’s a closer look at the options we offer:


Removable Partial Dentures:


    • These are the most common type of partial dentures.

    • They consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base.

    • Removable partial dentures are held in place by metal clasps or precision attachments, providing stability and functionality.


Temporary Dentures:


    • Designed as a temporary solution while waiting for permanent partial dentures.

    • Temporary dentures help maintain the space and shape of your mouth during the healing process after tooth extraction or other dental procedures.


Flexible Partial Dentures:


    • Made from a lightweight, flexible material for enhanced comfort.

    • These dentures offer a more natural-looking appearance compared to traditional rigid partial dentures.

    • Flexible partial dentures are particularly popular among individuals with a low palate or those who struggle with conventional dentures.


Our experienced dentists will conduct a thorough evaluation of your oral health and discuss your preferences to determine the best type of partial denture for your specific needs, whether for the upper or lower jaw.
