PARTIAL DENTURES

Introduction to Partial Dentures

REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURE TYPES AND MATERIALS

Depending on the teeth remaining in your oral cavity, partial dentures may be completely tooth supported, tissue/tooth supported and implant/tissue supported. Partial dentures can be constructed out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic. The design process involved in creating a removable partial (denture) is specific to the patient’s needs.

Every effort is made to design a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral structures. When a partial denture is designed, the denturist acknowledges that chewing places a strain on the remaining teeth during eating. Partial dentures are designed with this in mind so that the chewing forces can be distributed evenly over the entire remaining teeth and soft tissues. Design modifications to your remaining teeth may be required to help equalize these forces. Metal partials are considered stronger structurally, thinner and more hygienic than an acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are usually recommended as a transitional or temporary partial. Your denturist will determine the appropriate treatment plan and the appropriate partial for you.
