It takes all those hooks and clamps to secure his two missing teeth!
Partial dentures damage the teeth they hold onto over time. Most commonly they break off or decay at the gum line causing the partial to get bigger and bigger and eventually become a full denture. Even teeth with crowns that touch the partial get recurrent cavities and decay. Your palate is either fully or partially covered if it for your upper jaw.
Partial removable dentures speed up the process of tooth loss.
The bone in the area of the missing teeth continues to shrink from disuse atrophy.
All of this can be replaced with just two simple dental implants.
