Partial Dentures

Recall, Recare

TYPE AND STYLE OF PARTIALS

 

A partial denture may be tooth-supported or tooth and tissue-supported. There are significant differences between these two types of dentures. These differences are best explained by Daniel.

 

The number of teeth remaining, the position and the stability of the teeth are only a few of the factors that help to determine what style or type of partial denture would be best for you. Partials can be made of different materials, including acrylics, a metal/acrylic combination or flexible thermoplastics.

 

Acrylic partials are usually used as a transitional or temporary replacement of missing teeth, depending on your personal circumstances.

 

The metal/acrylic partial commonly called a cast partial is usually a more rigid and permanent style of denture. The metal is either a highly compatible chrome cobalt alloy or titanium, which are both ultra thin, light and very strong.

 

The new flexible thermoplastics have the advantage of esthetics and flexibility

 

All partials are designed to be removable and should be removed nightly to contribute to a healthy oral environment.

 

With newer designs, materials and techniques, partials are more comfortable than ever before. Ask us about the many designs available, some of which have no visible clasps and are virtually undetectable.

 

THE BENEFITS OF PARTIALS

 

Partial dentures do not harm remaining natural teeth. A partial denture may prevent your natural teeth from shifting or drifting into the space left by the loss of a natural tooth. In fact, a partial denture may help maintain the position of your natural teeth by providing them with additional support.

 

With a partial denture, you’ll look better, feel better and chew better!

Your dentures are important to the way you look and feel. That’s why it’s important to maintain dentures and ensure they perform at their optimum so you can perform at your best.

 

A regular check-up with your Denturist is the most effective way for you and your dentures to get the care and attention you both deserve.

 

WHY IS A RECARE APPOINTMENT NECESSARY?

 

TISSUES AND BONE

 

Over time, your mouth goes through considerable changes. Tissue shrinkage and loss of underlying bone (resorption) on which your dentures rest will occur. Since your dentures do not change, they may no longer fit like they once did.

 

ORAL CAVITY

 

An annual oral exam may prevent or help detect the existence of oral cancer or other abnormal conditions.

 

MEDICAL OR DENTAL HISTORY

 

Updating both medical and dental history is an important step towards quality denture treatment.

 

FIT AND BITE OF YOUR EXISTING DENTURE

 

Worn out dentures can cause improper fit and bite which can lead to other problems. They can also cause changes in your ability to bite, your speech and your appearance.

 

THE INTEGRITY OF YOUR DENTURES

 

Natural Smiles will check for cracks, chips, scratches, and worn or loose teeth.
