Partial Dentures

A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces one or more missing teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.

It consists of artificial teeth attached to a gum-coloured plastic base, which is connected by acrylic resin or a metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are custom-made to fit each patient's specific needs and mouth structure.

How Partial Dentures Are Made

Partial dentures are made by taking a series of impressions of your mouth to create a wax trial denture. After testing the trial denture and making any necessary adjustments for fit and comfort, we use this wax model to create your partial denture from chrome, flexible material, or acrylic.

The denture can be held in place by acrylic or metal clasps that hook onto your remaining teeth, significantly reducing movement.

Benefits of Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are a cost-effective alternative to dental implants or bridges that can replace missing teeth and restore your smile's appearance. They can also improve speech and pronunciation which may have been affected by tooth loss.

Additionally, partial dentures enhance chewing ability and promote proper digestion. Furthermore, they help prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

Lastly, partial dentures distribute biting forces evenly across the jaw, promoting overall oral health.

Types of Partial Dentures

At Kennett Road Dental Practice, we offer several types of partial dentures to suit our patients' diverse needs and preferences:

Cobalt-Chrome Metal Dentures

These durable dentures have a thin metal framework that supports the artificial teeth.
The metal is precisely crafted to fit around the natural teeth and is covered in gum-coloured plastic for a seamless appearance.

Flexible Dentures

Made from lightweight, flexible materials like nylon, these dentures are comfortable and virtually invisible.
They are an excellent choice for patients who want a natural look without visible metal clasps.

Acrylic Dentures

Partial dentures made from acrylic resin are usually temporary partial dentures used as a transitional solution while awaiting a more permanent treatment like dental implants. However, some patients wear these successfully for many years.
They are lightweight and affordable.

How to Take Care of Your Partial Denture

Proper care is crucial to maintain your partial denture and protect your remaining natural teeth and gums. Brush your denture daily with a soft-bristled brush and gentle cleanser. Soak your denture overnight in a cleaning solution to keep it moist.

Additionally, brush your natural teeth, gums, and tongue twice daily. Eat a balanced diet and limit sugary or sticky foods. Finally, visit your dentist regularly for checkups and adjustments and see your hygienist regularly for professional cleanings and hygiene advice.
