When teeth are lost, the underlying bone gradually shrinks away and the support of the tissues begins to disintegrate. The cheeks and lips are suspended from teh cheekbones to the lower jaw and should delicately drape in perfect balance. When vertical dimension of th emouth is decreased due to bone loss the tissues ang, producing frowns and creaes. Correction of vertical dimension lets the face appear more youthful and happier in many cases. We reconstruct healthier younger looking faces by proper healthy support of the skin, muscles, and other facial soft tissues.

When you are missing several teeth but not all of them, removable partial dentures are one option for replacing them.
The best way to replace multiple teeth is with dental implants. But not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, and they are also more expensive. Removable partial dentures do an adequate job of restoring your appearance and function.
The traditional partial is made on a metal framework, with metal clasps. This makes a relatively strong and secure replacement. The metal clasps, which are required to retain the denture, can cause some embarrassment if they are visible. They also attract plaque, so keeping your teeth clean requires extra effort.
