Partial Dentures

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are custom-designed dental appliances used to replace one or several missing teeth. Crafted to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, these removable prosthetics consist of artificial teeth set in an acrylic or metal framework. Partial dentures not only restore aesthetics but also aid in improving chewing functionality and speech. These versatile devices anchor securely to remaining teeth or gums, providing stability and comfort. They offer a practical solution for individuals missing some teeth while maintaining oral health and supporting surrounding teeth. Whether acrylic-based or with metal clasps, partial dentures are tailored to fit snugly, ensuring a harmonious blend with your smile and enhancing confidence in everyday interactions.

three different types of partial dentures
  • How do partial dentures stay in place?

    Partial dentures can be secured in the mouth through various means: clasps that grip neighboring teeth, precision attachments, or by resting on the gums with adhesive.

  • How long do partial dentures last?

    With proper care, partial dentures can last several years. However, they might need adjustments or relining as the mouth structure changes over time.

  • Do partial dentures affect oral hygiene routines?

    Yes, maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial even with partial dentures. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are essential to prevent gum disease and maintain oral health.
