partials
by: Dr. Gary

Some people adapt nicely to partials, some people do not (as written above). Partials can be designed to minimize the coverage over the palate, as that does make it difficult to get used to, especially regarding eating and speaking.

Maybe the dentist can make a new one with a different design?

Implants or other fixed restorations are generally more comfortable, but they are at a much higher cost.
