What to Know About Getting a Partial Denture

Posted on 11/22/2021 by Front Desk
What to Know About Getting a Partial DentureWhen you have a missing tooth, you will experience challenges like eating difficulties, speech issues, and confidence setbacks. Several missing teeth in one section can be more troublesome, but partial dentures can help solve the problem. Partial dentures are made from metal or plastic and are anchored to real teeth using clasps to fill the gap created by the missing tooth. This helps restore your smile and put your mouth back to its full functionality. In most cases, partial dentures are alternatives to dental implants or bridges. The process of getting partial dentures is simple and straightforward.

Getting Partial Dentures

If you are interested in getting partial dentures, it is important to understand the process of installing them. Before the installation process, our professionals will perform a thorough dental exam to look for possible problems that would affect your ability to wear partial dentures. After that, they will use a loose denture base and thoroughly wax the teeth rims to enhance the appearance of your new dentures. These replicas are then inserted into your mouth and are constantly adjusted until they fit comfortably. After getting the measures, we will use them to create perfectly fitting dentures that match your mouth structure. This process is simple and is complete within a very short time.

Caring for Partial Dentures

Just like regular dentures, partial dentures must be cleaned on a regular basis. You should perform routine dental cleaning like brushing to keep your partial dentures in the best condition. Furthermore, you should also soak dentures at night and clean them with a soft-bristled toothbrush. When cleaning partial dentures, avoid using regular toothpaste because it can be too abrasive and cause damage. Besides, you should come to our offices for regular denture checkups. Visit our offices for more information on partial dentures and how they work.
