Dentures & Partials

What are Full and Partial Dentures?

Full and partial dentures are designed to replace teeth that you’re missing. If you have periodontal disease, the teeth may eventually become too loose to stay in place. This is when we will recommend having them removed and replaced with a full denture. Partials are more suitable for patients who are just missing a few teeth but who do not want bridge work or implants.

Why would you need Full and Partial Dentures?

Partials and full dentures are types of prosthetic appliances that will replace missing teeth. When teeth are missing, your smile looks sparse and you may find that you just don’t feel confident in your appearance. Both dentures and partials are removable, so you can take them out at night and clean them so that they’re ready for the next day. The plates can last for about seven years before they will need to be replaced. Dentures and partials can be professionally repaired if and when needed.

What makes you a candidate for Full and Partial Dentures?

Full and partial dentures are ideal for most patients who are missing many of their teeth or are missing an entire arch. If you have severe decay or periodontal disease, teeth may need to be removed prior to being fitted for the prosthetic. To determine if this type of appliance is right for you, you’ll need to come in and have a consultation as well as an exam. If you already wear either full or partial dentures, it’s a good idea to replace them after seven years or when they begin to show signs of severe wear and tear.

What can you expect during the procedure for Full and Partial Dentures?

The first step is to remove any infected or loose teeth prior to the actual fitting procedure. Once the gums have healed completely, you’ll have impressions taken by our staff which are used to construct a full place or partial denture. You’ll come in when the prosthetic is made and have it fitted. We may need to adjust it slightly to improve the fit or even out ridges. You can expect the denture to look amazingly natural and real no matter how many teeth the appliance is replacing.
