About three million teeth get broken and lost every year as a result of dental trauma during an oral injury. While it is sometimes possible to restore a knocked-out tooth, many times these teeth are lost and need to be replaced with a dental restoration. We offer partial dentures for patients who have lost one or several teeth and need to fill large spaces in their gums.

In a situation where a broken tooth can’t be restored, Dr. Sterling Whitworth may need to extract the remaining tooth structure and roots to leave a clear area for the denture appliance after your mouth has healed. Later, our doctor can review your options for dental restoration and improving the appearance of your smile. If you would prefer to avoid the oral surgery needed to place a dental implant, you can receive a partial denture to regain the basic function of your mouth.

Partial dentures are a special type of oral appliance that mimics the function and appearance of the teeth that were lost. It is comprised of teeth set in a pink base that replicates the look of healthy gums. This type of denture is removable and can be held in place with interlocking wires.

If you are dealing with significant dental trauma and are interested in receiving partial dentures in Covington, Georgia, we invite you to call 770-450-6551 to speak with our team at Covington Dental Partners.
