Your 32 permanent teeth play an essential role in biting, chewing, and breaking down food. When two or more teeth are lost to  gum disease, untreated tooth decay, or a severe dental trauma, it can hamper this function.

In a situation like this, you should consider scheduling an appointment with our dentist Dr. Lien Ngo. After a thorough examination she can help you understand the best method for restoring your appearance and ability to speak and eat.

If you have lost a significant amount of bone structure in the area, a dental implant restoration may not be right for you. Should this prove to be the case, our dentist might suggest fitting you for a removable partial denture. This dental appliance will be created to closely mimic the appearance and function of your missing teeth. It also incorporates a pink base that matches the appearance of your gums.  If any of the nearby teeth have also been compromised, the pdr_type]  might recommend having them extracted and replicated in the partial denture.

While it will fit firmly in your mouth, many people with a partial denture like to use a small amount of denture adhesive to help hold it in place and block out food particles.

If you live in the Placerville, California, area and you have suffered the loss of multiple teeth, you should call 530-622-1987 to schedule a restoration consultation at Brookside Dental.
