What is the purpose of a Partial Denture?
A removable partial denture is designed specifically to meet the patient's needs and can replace one or more missing teeth. A natural appearance and speech clarity is restored, along with the ability to eat more efficiently.
Partial Denture Types and Materials
Partial dentures are created out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic. A patient's specific needs and anatomy dictate the design of the partial denture. Every effort is made to construct a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral tissues.
Our Dentists will design your partial denture so that the chewing forces are evenly distributed over the entire surface of the remaining teeth and soft tissues. Dentists may recommend changes to your remaining teeth to help equalize these forces.
Metal partials are generally preferred as they are structurally superior. They are thinner and more hygienic than acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are typically used as transitional or temporary partial. Our Dentists will consult with you to determine the appropriate partial for your situation.
Benefits of Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture may help limit the movement of your existing natural teeth. They also allow you to better grind and chew food improving digestion.
