If you’ve lost multiple teeth in one part of your mouth to advanced tooth decay or extractions, you’re likely interested in exploring your restoration options. One viable option that some people choose is to have our dentist, Dr. Gerald Spoto, fit them for a custom partial.
Dr. Spoto will start by examining your mouth and taking a few X-rays. This helps him to assess the overall health of your mouth and identify any other problematic teeth that need to be addressed. Should there be other compromised teeth in the area, they might need to be extracted before you can be fitted for your new partial.
Dr. Spoto will then create a detailed impression of the area. This will be sent to a dental lab where your new custom partial is custom crafted. Once the dental lab has completed your partial, we will call you back in for a brief second appointment to fit your new partial in place. This might include making some minor adjustments, and also giving you tips for cleaning and maintaining the partial and surrounding teeth. Many people wearing partials prefer to use denture adhesive to secure their partial in place and help block out food particles.
If you have multiple compromised or missing teeth in one part of your mouth and are interested in being fit for a custom partial, please call Pro Spoto Dental in Tampa, Florida, at (813) 884-3287 to set up an appointment. We are excited to help you maintain excellent oral health while sporting a confident smile!
