Losing multiple teeth in one part of your mouth can seriously compromise your ability to chew, eat, and talk. In order to replace the lost teeth, your dentists, Dr. Kent Stapley & Dr. Nathan Kitchen, might recommend fitting you for a removable, custom partial denture in Mesa, Arizona.
Dr. Kent Stapley & Dr. Nathan Kitchen will start by examining your mouth and taking a few X-rays. This helps Dr. Kent Stapley & Dr. Nathan Kitchen 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.
Then, they will cast a detailed impression of the area. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians craft your new custom partial.
Once the dental lab techs have completed your partial, Dr. Kent Stapley & Dr. Nathan Kitchen will call you back in for a brief second appointment to fit your new partial in place. This appointment might also include making some minor adjustments, and your dentist might give you tips for cleaning and maintaining the appliance and surrounding teeth.
If you have lost multiple teeth in one part of your mouth, you should call Dr. Kent Stapley & Dr. Nathan Kitchen at 480-830-8946 to see if you’re a good candidate for a custom, removable partial.
