A 31-year-old member asked:

Is it possible for my crooked front teeth to be replaced by a partial denture?

Maybe.: If there is space to place teeth and look normal and if the teeth that support and retain the partial are healthy enough to do so, then yes. Crooked front teeth are best treated with braces or invisalign.

Possibly: Depends on the condition of the remaing teeth in that arch that are needed to support that partial. See your dentist for what would work best in your mouth.

Possibly: Alll depends on how all the other teeth fit together. If there is room between the top and bottom teeth for the partial denture to fit, and if there are enough teeth left to support it, then it likely is possible. See a prosthodontist for an evaluation. They specialize in this type of treatment.
