What to Know About Getting a Partial Denture

Posted on 8/8/2022 by Dr. David Wanserski
What to Know About Getting a Partial DenturePeople with missing teeth tend to experience a wide range of challenges like speech issues, eating difficulties, and low self-esteem. Having several missing teeth in one section can be even more challenging. Luckily, partial dentures can solve this problem. They are made from plastic or metal, and are usually anchored to natural teeth using clasps. This means they fill the gap created by missing teeth. By doing so, they help restore your smile and improve your facial appearance. Mostly, partial dentures are alternatives to dental bridges or implants. Remember that the process of getting partial dentures is straightforward.

Getting Partial Dentures

If you would like to get partial dentures, you should understand how these oral appliances are installed. Before the installation process starts, we will perform a comprehensive oral exam to check whether you have any underlying oral condition that affects partial dentures. Then, we will use a loose denture base to wax loose denture base to improve the physical appearance of partial dentures. After that, we insert the replicas in your mouth and constantly adjust them until they fit comfortably. The measurements will then be used to create perfectly fitting partial dentures for your use. It is essential to get well fitting dentures to avoid discomfort. Within a short time, your partial dentures will be ready, and you can use them right away.

Taking good care of your partial dentures is very important. For instance, you should brush and clean them regularly. This helps get rid of unnecessary dirt that could cause infections. Furthermore, by taking good care of your partial dentures, you prevent them from getting stained. Using stained dentures is unreliable because they could affect your physical appearance. Schedule a consultative appointment with us for more information on partial dentures and how they work.
