Missing a tooth or two? Partial dentures are a great option for those who are missing several teeth but still have some healthy, natural teeth remaining. They are designed to replace the missing teeth and provide an aesthetically pleasing smile and improved chewing ability.
Partial dentures are typically made from either acrylic or metal. Acrylic partial dentures are usually less expensive, but they are not as durable as metal partial dentures. Metal partial dentures are more durable and can last for many years, making them a great investment for your oral health. When it comes to fitting and wearing partial dentures, the process is relatively simple.
Your dentist will take a series of impressions and measurements of your mouth to create a custom-fit partial denture that will fit comfortably and securely. Once the partial denture is made, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a proper fit. Partial dentures can also be secured in place with dental implants, making them even more secure and stable. This is a great option for those who are missing several teeth as it provides a secure, permanent solution that doesn’t require any additional maintenance.
Caring for your partial dentures is also relatively easy. You should brush them daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and denture cleanser to remove plaque and food particles. You should also soak them in a denture cleanser overnight to keep them clean and fresh.
