Metal Partial: I had a metal partial put in my mouth to replace the bottom front two teeth.
I have a very small jaw so when my dentist made the partial, he had to make the teeth set crooked. Not bad, just a little crooked.
I was some what surprised when I saw them. I just thought that all fake teeth were straight. Is this unusual? ... Visitor from CO
It is unusual for replacement teeth to be crooked.
I would ask the dentist why they are and ask him to replace the teeth if this bothers you. It is possible to replace denture teeth with new teeth after the partial is made.
Hope this helps you.
