What are the advantages of removable partial dentures?
The fit of the parts is very important to evenly distribute your biting forces, prevent trauma to your gums and natural teeth, and look and function as normally as possible. For patients with multiple missing teeth, RPDs are less invasive and have a lower cost than other tooth replacement options
How long do removable partial dentures last?
Five to seven years
Dentists often recommend a removable partial denture to replace up to three consecutively missing teeth to restore function and aesthetics. This dental prosthesis can help patients chew again and stabilize the remaining natural teeth. According to the Cleveland Clinic, removable dentures can last five to seven years.
What is the difference between an implant and a prosthesis?
The implant is implanted directly into the bone, restoring chewing function and aesthetics in the case of a single or complete absence of teeth. The prosthesis is fixed on living roots and requires more careful care.
