A removable partial denture is designed specifically to meet the needs of the patient and can replace one or more missing teeth. A natural appearance and speech clarity is restored along with the ability to eat more efficiently.
Partial Denture Types and Materials
Partial dentures are created out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic. A patient’s specific needs and anatomy dictate the design of the partial denture and every effort is made to construct a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral tissues.
Dr. Smart will design your partial denture so that the chewing forces are evenly distributed over the entire surface are of the remaining teeth and soft tissues. Changes to your remaining teeth may be recommended to help equalize these forces.
Metal partials are generally preferred as they are structurally superior. They are thinner and more hygienic than an acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are typically used as a transitional or temporary partial. Dr. Smart will consult with you to determine the appropriate partial for your situation.
Benefits of Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture may help limit movement of your existing natural teeth. They also allow you to better grind and chew food improving digestion.

Patient Review by grady m
my denture cracked in half which basically means i can't eat except soup. i called on thursday and they got me in on monday. they fixed my denture and i had it back by wednesday. look how many dentists do you know while they are messing around in your mouth are singing country and western music at the same time. to me this showed a great deal of confidence in what she was doing and at the same time made me feel real comfortable. my wife has been going to the same dentist and she is going to change to dr. smart as well as my mother in law. much praise to this doctor and her staff. grady m

Patient Review by Ralph H
I have been aversed to dental work for years. Dr. Smart, immediately allayed my fears. Her charisma is surpassed only by her professionalism. She is thoroughly meticulous in her presentation of every procedure, and equally personable in each application. I walked away with new dentures and a sparkling smile. I could sing the praises of Dr. Smart forever. Suffice it to say, Dr. Smart and her staff, particularly Meridth and Marissa, are the BEST, bar none!
