Partial Dentures are removable prostheses that can replace one or multiple missing teeth in your mouth. Partial dentures normalize your chewing and talking, and can preserve the placement of your remaining teeth— halting their shifting over time.
These dentures’ removable nature makes them easier to clean and this helps reduces the risk of developing cavities that could affect your healthy teeth.
If one or more teeth have been extracted, a partial denture is a good option to replace them.
With dentures, speaking and eating are made easier—just as it was when you had complete teeth.
They can provide the stability that your natural teeth give to each other. With a new complete set of teeth, your jaw bone’s structure can also be maintained.
Partial dentures are the easiest and most affordable way of having a complete set of teeth again, making you smile brighter once more.
You’re a good candidate for partial dentures if:
Partial dentures can be for anyone that still has remaining healthy, natural teeth in their mouth. To check on your teeth’s health, consult your dentist.
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your partial denture and your natural teeth.
Remove them gently and insert them carefully. Improper placement and removal, such as “biting them into place” can cause damage to your dentures or your natural teeth.
Leave your dentures out overnight. You can soak them, or leave them to dry. The gums need a break from the dentures. Make sure to brush the dentures after removal and before inserting them in the morning.
If your dentures crack or it starts getting loose, don’t hesitate to visit your denturist. Most importantly, if your natural teeth feel odd, consult your dentist immediately. Yearly visits are a must, and we recommend a tooth cleaning at least every six months.
