Partial Dentures

Regarding missing teeth, Dr. Fawzi Hijazi of San Antonio Smile Pros offers many handy options to restore one’s smile. Some patients ask, “are there denture options if I’m only missing a few teeth?” Well, partial dentures answer this call. Our high-quality partial dentures are removable tooth-replacement devices customized to improve appearances and optimal fit for patients in Alamo Heights, Shavano Park, and other North San Antonio communities.

Our Approach to Partial

Whether you need upper partial dentures or partial bottom dentures, partial dentures for front teeth or partial dentures for back teeth, our San Antonio dental team can help you find the best tooth-replacement option that works for you. While dental implant-supported restorations are highly sought after, they are not suitable for everyone, and removable partial dentures are a better option for many individuals.

For starters, removable devices are an excellent option for patients who cannot withstand the intensive, drawn-out dental implant process. Removable partial dentures are a far less invasive and more affordable procedure. Above all, the best tooth replacement options help you feel most confident in your appearance, function properly, and feel comfortable.

The Basics

If you’re only missing a few teeth, partial dentures are an excellent tooth-replacement solution. Like a full set of dentures, they are held in place with a plastic base that emulates natural gums. Also, they have a metal framework that secures the base and prevents fall out. Partial dentures are a great choice for those with some natural teeth in place.

Frequently Asked Questions


Are there alternatives to traditional partial dentures?

What’s the difference between partial dentures and full dentures?

Generally, partial dentures require some remaining healthy teeth for support. Alternatively, full dentures are full for patients who miss a full row of teeth (in their upper or lower jaw) or have undergone a full mouth extraction.


What’s the difference between partial dentures and a dental bridge?

In short, removability. Partial dentures are removable. On the other hand, two healthy teeth anchor dental bridges.


How should partial dentures fit?

Figuring out if your partials fit well can be tricky, and it can take a few weeks to get used to brand-new partial dentures.
