If you’ve lost one or more teeth, you may be reviewing the best options to replace them. Wang + Cortes Dental offers a comprehensive range of restorations for lost or missing teeth, including crowns, implants, partials, and dentures near you.
Partials are a good option for those missing a few teeth, while full denture sets are ideal for those who do not have natural teeth. Some patients also opt for individual implants where each implant supports a crown, but this is often expensive.
Partials and dentures in Tampa, FL, are a popular, simple, and effective way to replace lost teeth. They help balance your dental arch, seal gaps, and improve your facial structure while improving chewing and speaking functionalities at the same time.
There are several different types of partials available to choose from. While our dentists at Wang + Cortes Dental may offer professional recommendations, the final choice is yours to make.
Cast Metal Removable Partials: Cast metal partials are designed for durability and can be attached to natural teeth with metal clasps. Our dentists use precision attachments for a more aesthetic effect.
Acrylic Removable Partials: These are also called ‘flippers’ and are usually used as temporary replacements until a more permanent restoration is fabricated or prepared. They are less expensive than cast metal partials but may feel bulkier when placed in the oral cavity.
Flexible Partials: Flexible partials are heat-resistant, ultra-thin partial dentures. Our dentists in Tampa, FL, recommend these for increased comfort and aesthetics. They are fitted onto natural teeth with the help of gum-colored clasps.
Patients who are missing nearly all or most of their teeth may benefit from wearing full dentures. Full dentures rest on a flesh-colored base that fits your oral cavity snugly and comfortably.
At Wang + Cortes Dental, we inform our patients regarding the procedure for getting partials or full dentures and offer detailed aftercare instructions. If you need help replacing lost teeth, please feel free to call one of our trained dentists for information regarding partials and dentures near you.
