Partial dentures are removable and made of acrylic. They attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps that look like small, thin metal wires. At Summit Denture Clinic, partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth.
How Can Partial Dentures Help My Smile?
If you still have several teeth that are healthy but must be removed, partial dentures may be a great option for you. Partial dentures are removable, so you can snap them in and out as needed. They also help restore your smile’s appearance, allowing you to speak, smile, eat, and laugh naturally again.
When Are Partial Dentures Used?
Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of a gum-colored base that holds replacement teeth. The base is designed to fit snugly around your existing teeth, which helps hold the denture in place. Partial dentures are removable, allowing you to take them out for cleaning.
The Benefits of Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are removable restorations that replace missing teeth. They fit well and look natural, so no one will be able to tell that you’re wearing them. They are a great option for restoring your smile if you have several missing teeth that are scattered throughout your mouth.
Partial dentures are an option if you have a few missing teeth. They are an economical alternative to a dental bridge, which requires placing crowns on surrounding teeth. Partial dentures can be held in place using natural suction. They can also be secured with dental implants, particularly if you have several missing teeth.
How Long Do Partial Dentures Last?
Typically, partial dentures last three to seven years. However, they may last longer or shorter, depending on how well they fit, and how you take care of them. Since partial dentures are removable, they can become damaged. They can also become loose or ill-fitting over time due to normal wear. As a result, they may become less effective or need to be replaced.
How to Care For Your Partial Dentures?
Caring for your partial dentures is simple. Be sure to rinse your partial dentures thoroughly after every meal. You can clean them with a denture cleanser or dish detergent. If your partial dentures have metal clasps that attach to your surrounding teeth, you should brush these as well. Be sure to keep your partial dentures moist when you are not wearing them.
Partial dentures are also called “partials” because they are removable. However, most partial dentures are designed to fit securely and will not fall out on their own.
