We are excited to offer partial dentures for our clients in Juneau, Alaska looking to replace lost teeth. Partial dentures are optimal for those who still have one or more natural teeth in their upper or lower jaw.

Partial dentures are basically replacement teeth that are connected to a pink or gum-colored plastic base. These dentures either have clasps connecting your teeth to a metal framework or some other connector that looks more natural, known as precision attachments. Sometimes, a removable partial denture necessitates having crowns on your remaining teeth to ensure a better fit.

When it comes to maintaining your partial denture for optimal performance, always follow our dentist’s instructions. Seeing your dentist regularly for adjustments is important, as your mouth changes with age. As your mouth shifts, this can affect how your partial denture continues to fit. Your bone and gum ridges tend to shrink and recede as you age.

Ill-fitting dentures can invite oral sores and gum inflammation. If your dentures loosen please call our office immediately to have them adjusted. If your denture breaks, cracks, or chips, you will want to see our dentist right away.

Do you have missing teeth in your smile causing you problems with chewing and speaking? If so, we are ready to help. If you would like to know more about your denture options, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our dentist by calling 907-789-2066 today. Dr. Lonnie Anderson and our team are here to help maintain your beautiful smile!
