Partial dentures are a popular form of tooth replacement that relieves missing teeth stress. Partial dentures fit over your existing teeth and provide a bridge between those and the teeth you’re missing. By doing so, partial dentures help improve your appearance, allow you to eat comfortably, keep your jaw functioning correctly, and even help with your speech by bringing back the lost articulation functions! They can also be designed to replace multiple missing teeth at once, so you don’t have to go through any bothersome individual implants or bridges. They can help prevent further gum or bone degradation in lost teeth. Due to the materials used in their construction, partial dentures can be quite strong and long-lasting. Dr. Michael Laraway, Dr. Joana Laraway, and their team are here to ensure that you get the best fit for your individual needs.
The process for making them is pretty simple:
There are a variety of partial dentures that can replace your missing teeth. Depending on the amount of tooth structure remaining, we may recommend a removable partial denture or a fixed bridge.
A removable partial denture uses clasps to attach it firmly to the anchoring teeth while providing easy removal for cleaning and maintenance. A fixed bridge typically spans multiple teeth with crowns and is cemented in place for excellent stability compared to a removable partial. The type of denture best for you will depend on many factors—from the number and locations of remaining teeth to personal preference—so it’s important to discuss your unique circumstances with our team.
Fitting and adjusting a partial denture is vital to the prosthetic process. Your partial denture must fit snuggly, not too tight or too loose. Our clinic will work with you to ensure your denture fits perfectly and can be adjusted as needed by shaving areas of the crowns to allow room for better fit and movement. We understand how crucial proper fit is to ensure you feel comfortable in your prosthetic, so feel free to let us know if something feels wrong. After all the fitting and adjustments are complete, you’ll be much happier with having a mouth full of pearly whites!
Taking care of your partial dentures is essential to keeping your smile healthy. It’s important to brush them regularly, just like natural teeth, as this removes plaque and bacteria that can cause infections or odor. Make sure you use a soft-bristled toothbrush so as not to scratch or damage the surface of the denture. Be sure to rinse them off before placing them in their soaking solution to prevent staining and discoloration, although it’s best to avoid placing them in hot water. Finally, remember that regular check-ups with your dentist are vital so they can monitor how the fit of your dentures has changed since they were first made; by doing this, we can work together to keep a perfect smile on your face!
