Posted on: February 1, 2016

Partial DenturesIf you have lost a tooth or two, visit our office for help.  Partial dentures can restore your mouth function by helping you eat and speak like you once did. If you are ready to have your day-to-day life restored, visit our office for the dentures you need. Not only will our partial dentures help you eat and speak, but they will also improve your appearance and keep your dental structure strong. Receiving dentures from our office does not take long, and before you know it, you will have a fully functional mouth. 

There Are Multiple Types of Partial Dentures

There are different types of partial dentures. If you prefer a more permanent partial denture, we can use an implant-supported method. The implant method takes a little longer than traditional, removable partial dentures take to be created and placed because the implant method requires surgical placement. Once the implant (a titanium rod-like structure) is placed into your jawbone, it will need a few months to fully fuse with your bone for permanency before a prosthetic tooth partial denture can be placed on it. There are also different materials that can be used for partial dentures. Some partial dentures have metal components while others are created completely of a flexible plastic material. The type of partial dentures you receive will depend on your preferences and your needs.

How Partial Dentures are Created

Partial dentures are reserved for people who have lost one or more teeth, but not all of their teeth. You will be able to remove partial dentures when you want to. Partial dentures are created to match your other nearby teeth in color and shape. Clasps will be attached to your partial dentures that you can secure to other teeth to help keep them in place.

In most cases, the creation of your partial dentures takes around a month or a month and a half from your first evaluation to the placement of your custom dentures. We will examine your remaining teeth and gums on the upper and lower arches of your mouth. Then we will take an impression of your gums and teeth that will be used for the creation of your partial dentures. We will also create an impression of your bite and determine how your upper and lower arches meet. We will discuss ways for your remaining teeth to help support your partial dentures. Once your partial dentures are created, you will visit us for a fitting. We will make sure everything fits into place securely and that you can speak correctly. After final fabrication is completed, you will be able to head home with your brand new, custom-created partial dentures.

You should visit our office for partial dentures because we are highly experienced in the creation and placement of dentures. We know how to accurately describe the procedure and the result you will receive. We can also teach you how to care for your partial dentures in the correct way to elongate their staying power and durability. For more information, call our office and schedule a consultation.
