Removable Partial Dentures
WHAT ARE REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES?
A removable partial denture is an appliance that uses artificial teeth to replace one or more missing teeth. This appliance is attached to your remaining teeth or implant crowns with metal clasps, and is supported by your soft tissue. Because this appliance relies on the patient’s soft tissue and remaining teeth for retention & stability, a thorough examination will be performed to determine if dental work is needed prior to removable partial denture fitting. These dentures are removable to allow for easy cleaning. A removable partial denture is made using acrylic, composite, & metal. The gums are made from acrylic, covering a metal substructure. The artificial teeth are made from composite, and less often porcelain. Your removable partial dentures will be designed by a trained prosthodontist to best fit your specific needs.
Benefits of Removable Partial Dentures:
- Protects the health of oral tissues, and prevent other teeth from drifting into gaps left by missing teeth. When teeth drift, they open spaces, creating bacteria growth and gum disease
- Restores the comfort of normal chewing, eating, and speech once skewed by tooth loss
- Improves your appearance and bolsters confidence that’s lost when teeth were missing
