Dr. Karisha Madden will first examine your mouth and take a few x-rays to get a clear understanding of your jaw structure and address any other questionable teeth. Additional compromised teeth in the area might need to be extracted before he can fit you for a partial.
After all questionable teeth have been addressed Dr. Karisha Madden will form an impression of your mouth. This will later be sent to a dental lab where your new partial is custom made to match your mouth.
Many people with a partial like to use denture adhesive to secure it in place. The adhesive also helps to block food particles from getting between the gums and your partial.
If you are interested in being fitted for a partial, you should call Madden Dental at (713) 667-8080 to schedule an appointment.
