What Are Removable Partial Dentures?

Removable partial dentures are custom-made oral appliances used to restore one or several missing teeth. They typically consist of natural-looking replacement teeth attached to gum-colored resin bases. Partials are connected to adjacent natural teeth using frameworks and clasps or precision attachments. At times, crowns on your natural teeth may be needed to provide a perfect, secure fit.

Why Choose Removable Partial Dentures?

When you lose a tooth, the neighboring teeth may begin to shift and tilt, which can lead to dental issues, including tooth decay, gum disease, and problems with your bite. Removable partial dentures maintain the space left by missing teeth, which prevents the teeth from shifting and preserves the underlying structures of your mouth.

With partials, you'll speak with confidence and will chew your favorite foods with ease. You'll also enjoy improved oral health and a more youthful, confident appearance. Moreover, removable partial dentures are the most cost-effective teeth replacement option available, and you will not need to undergo the oral surgery that's necessary for dental implants.

What Is the Partial Denture Fitting Procedure?

Dr. Parson will take impressions of your mouth to make a model of your teeth, which we will use to fabricate your custom partial denture, tailored to the shape of your mouth and color-matched to your surrounding teeth. We will make any adjustments needed to ensure a perfect, comfortable fit. If you've had any teeth extracted, you will need to wait for your gums and jaw tissues to heal before fitting the restoration.

What Should You Expect While Adjusting to Your Partial Denture?

You may feel awkward at first, but you should soon become accustomed to your new removable partial denture. If you have any sore spots, we will make any adjustments needed to ensure you enjoy a comfortable fit. Make sure to follow the instructions provided about how long you should wear the denture, when to remove it, and how to care for your restoration.

How Should You Care for Your Partial Denture?

Make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily. Also, clean your partial denture every day using denture cleanser and a soft-bristled toothbrush to ensure it is free from food particles and to prevent permanent staining. When not in use, store your restoration in a denture solution or plain water to maintain its shape. Make sure you thoroughly rinse your partial denture before placing it in your mouth.

Will Your Partial Denture Need Repairs or Adjustments?

As your mouth naturally changes its shape over time, your partial denture may become loose. Never make any adjustments or repairs yourself to avoid damaging your restoration. Contact us immediately if your denture chips, cracks, breaks, or becomes loose or uncomfortable. We will make any necessary repairs or adjustments to allow for a perfect, comfortable fit.
