Partial dentures replace missing teeth and are held in place by a metal clasp that is attached to the patient's remaining teeth. A partial denture can be used to replace one or more front or back teeth. This appliance, which can be used on either the top or bottom arch of teeth, is an option for patients who want to replace lost teeth while retaining as many natural teeth as possible. Making the natural teeth as healthy as possible and taking precautions to ensure a suitable fit for the final product are all part of the process of receiving partial dentures. At Healthy Smile Dental Care, we provide partial dentures to our patients to help them restore their smiles and oral functions.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are an excellent solution for patients who still have several robust and healthy teeth. They consist of a metal framework that holds the replacement teeth in place and are held in place by the remaining natural teeth. Partial dentures must be removed before going to bed and soaked overnight in a denture cleaning solution.
Why Would a Person Require Partial Dentures?
You can choose partial dentures if you've lost one or several teeth on the top or bottom arch due to:
Whatever the reason for your tooth loss, your remaining teeth must be healthy to support the partial dentures. If they are not in good condition, the dentist may recommend having them extracted and replacing all the teeth with full dentures.
What Are the Benefits of Partial Dentures?
Because partial dentures are supported by a metal framework, they stay properly in place. This also keeps them strong.
The artificial teeth in partial dentures are made from dental-grade ceramic material. It has a long lifespan and can be made to look exactly like natural teeth.
Because they are custom-made, partials fit perfectly. The prosthetic teeth will not cause any discomfort because they are comfortable and fit in with the existing natural teeth.
Partial dentures restore oral functionality by allowing you to bite and chew food as you did when you had all of your teeth intact.
They can be easily removed and placed back on, just like traditional complete dentures.
