Teeth Lost to Severe Dental Trauma Can Be Replaced with a Removable Partial Denture

Posted .

Automotive accidents and athletic injuries can sometimes strike the mouth with such force that it severely fractures or knocks out multiple teeth. In some of these scenarios, the dental trauma is so severe that the teeth simply cannot be saved.

After your gums and other injuries have healed, you will likely want to explore your options for replacing your missing teeth. If there isn’t enough healthy bone structure remaining in the area to support a dental implant, our dentist, Dr. R. Nab might be able to provide you with a partial denture.

This removable dental appliance will be created in a special dental lab to comfortably match the existing structure of your gums. Depending on the size and location of the partial denture, it might also include some small wires to help hold it tightly with the neighboring teeth. At the same time, many partial denture users like to apply a small amount of adhesive when putting their dentures in. Doing so can help hold the dentures tightly in place, while also helping to block out food particles when you eat.

If you are in the Houston, Texas, area and you have recently lost multiple teeth to a severe dental trauma, you should call 713-481-5693 to explore the dental restorations available through Midtown Dental.
