A gap-toothed smile may be cute on a kid, but if you end up with gaps from missing teeth in your smile as an adult, the results are much less endearing. If you have lost a few teeth, you are probably looking for a way to restore your smile, and you may be wondering, “What are the best tooth replacement options near me?” At Titus Dentistry, we offer a variety of attractive tooth restoration options including partial dentures for residents in Middletown IN and surrounding areas.
When you think of dentures, you may imagine a full set of false teeth, but this is only one of the possible types of dentures used to restore smiles. A partial denture is a type of denture which serves as a replacement for only a few missing teeth, rather than for a full dental arch. Most partial dentures are often composed of a few false teeth attached to a false, gum-colored base. This type of dental restoration usually relies on existing teeth to support it and hold it in place, and it can be easily removed, much like traditional dentures.

Partial dentures are unique because they can actually replace multiple teeth in different places within a dental arch using a single restoration. There may be many reasons why a patient may find a partial denture to be the ideal restoration when compared with other options. These are just a few of the most common reasons many people choose partial dentures:
- They generally have a lower cost
- They are less invasive
- They can be removed
- They can be modified
- They preserve natural teeth
For most patients who have multiple teeth missing in a dental arch with a few healthy teeth remaining, partial dentures may be the best restoration option. They can provide the affordable benefits of a full denture while preserving the remaining healthy teeth for the best possible dental health. Best of all, a partial denture can be easily modified to be more comfortable and in some cases additional teeth can even be added to fill in more gaps in your smile if you lose more teeth.
Partial dentures can provide a simple, effective solution for nearly anyone in Middletown IN who has lost a few teeth. If you are missing teeth, call Titus Dentistry at (765) 358-5868 to discuss your needs so we can help you find the best restoration option to help you enjoy a functional, attractive smile again.
