You can have a beautiful, fully functional smile after you visit Nephi Dental Clinic for aesthetic dentures and partials. Drs. Scott and Doug Petersen design these tooth replacements so they will fit comfortably and look natural. Please contact our dentists if you would like to learn more about our dentures in Nephi, Utah.
Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. Dentures are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some of which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
A removable partial denture (RPD) is for a partially edentulous dental patient who wants to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons, and who cannot have a bridge (a fixed partial denture) for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge (i.e. distal abutments) or financial limitations.
The reason why this type of prosthesis is referred to as a removable partial denture is because patients can remove and reinsert them when required without professional help. Conversely, a “fixed” prosthesis can and should be removed only by a dental professional. We work closely with our great lab technicians to ensure the best results possible for your dentures.
