WHAT ARE PARTIAL DENTURES?

 

Partial dentures are a type of denture that is used to replace multiple missing teeth in the upper and lower portions of your mouth. They give you a reason to smile brightly and enhance your mouth's functionality by improving the wearer's speaking and chewing ability. Depending on the teeth remaining in your oral cavity, partial dentures may be entirely tooth-supported, tissue/tooth-supported or implant/tissue-supported. Partial dentures are more than a cosmetic device and are not intended to be worn around the clock, giving you the freedom to be free of any cosmetic hindrance while you are asleep and are not in use. They can be constructed out of metal and acrylic or solely out of acrylic. The design process involved in creating a removable partial denture is specific to each patient’s needs. Your denturists at Postings Denture Clinics in Victoria, BC, will determine the appropriate treatment plan and the appropriate partial for you; reach out to him now.

TYPES OF REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES

 

Partial dentures are available in both removable and fixed forms. Still, depending on the location, the number of teeth, durability and budget, a professional denturist decides which is best for you. There are three types of removable partial dentures available with us, including:

  • Cast metal partial dentures: They are the most common type of removable partial dentures, comprising a mixture of metals, including titanium. Cast metal partial dentures consist of a gum-coloured pink acrylic base and false teeth clasped using precision attachments or a metal clasp. This type of denture is a perfect choice if you are looking for a long-term alternative, as they are lightweight, stable and resistant to plaque buildup over time.

  • Flexible partial dentures: These are made of flexible plastic material that can blend with your natural teeth and gums to offer aesthetic appeal to your mouth. They are an excellent choice for people allergic to acrylic material but cannot be repaired once broken, so they are used only as a temporary solution.

  • Acrylic partial dentures: They consist of a removable acrylic base, an optional metal clasp, and plastic teeth. These are the least expensive partials and can offer aesthetic appeal to your teeth but are not meant to last long.

Metal partials are structurally stronger, thinner, and more hygienic than acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are usually recommended as transitional or temporary partials. Read our blogs to understand better what type of denture is right for you.

 

THE BENEFITS OF PARTIAL DENTURES

 

Partial dentures are an excellent choice if you've lost one or more teeth. They act as replacements for your teeth and ensure you can speak and smile properly. Partial dentures can also help you with chewing, which is critical for digestion. Some advantages of partial dentures are:

  • ​It can prevent the movement of other teeth due to losing a single tooth.

  • A less invasive procedure that can offer you a full smile again.

  • Easily adaptable as most of the patients can get used to it with constant wear for 1-2 weeks.

  • The process of fabrication can be relatively quick, offering instant solutions.

  • Adjustable in nature so that we can add new teeth to them, depending on the material.

  • A budget-friendly option for attaining a full smile.

Partial dentures can do an excellent job restoring the functionality of the section of the mouth that is missing teeth. Daily cleaning is necessary, but it is a simple process to keep the gums healthy and the denture looking great. It is a great solution when the other teeth in the mouth are healthy, as it is always preferable to keep the natural teeth. However, a complete denture may be your best solution if this is not an option. Contact us today if you are looking for a denturist in Victoria, BC.

 

WHY ARE PARTIAL DENTURES A GOOD INVESTMENT?

 

Most people reason that losing a tooth is not something to worry about, and replacing one or two teeth with a partial denture is a waste of money. The opposite is, in fact, true. Not opting for partial dentures risks creating even bigger problems for yourself. Leaving the gaps in your smile can cause teeth to shift out of alignment, resulting in changes in your smile's shape. You will also likely have difficulty chewing. Filling in those missing teeth can help preserve tooth alignment, preserve a proper bite, and give you a full and beautiful smile to show off. Getting partial dentures from our Victoria, Sidney, or Langford clinics is a great option for replacing missing teeth. When you have a new partial denture fabricated, you invest in a solution that lasts several years. If you have any future issues with your dentures, you can always contact us to get denture repairs or adjustments.

HOW MUCH WILL MY PARTIAL DENTURES COST?

 

There is no single price for partial dentures. The cost of partial dentures is affected by multiple considerations, such as:
 

  • The type of material used: The material chosen for your partial dentures significantly determines the cost. Common materials include acrylic, metal, and flexible thermoplastics. Acrylic dentures are generally more affordable but may offer different durability than metal or flexible options. Metal frameworks provide strength and a better fit, often at a higher cost. On the other hand, flexible thermoplastic dentures offer a comfortable and natural fit but are typically more expensive due to their advanced properties. 
     

  • The fittings required: The complexity and number of fittings required can also impact the price of your partial dentures. Our denturist will determine your oral shape and determine the ideal method for your dentures. Multiple fittings may be necessary to ensure a perfect shape, and each fitting can be included in the final price.
     

  • The dental health requirements of the patient: Your current dental fitness significantly affects the price of partial dentures. Patients with healthy gums and teeth usually require much less preparatory work, which can lessen costs. However, when you have dental troubles, which include gum ailment or decayed teeth that need extraction, extra procedures might be required before the dentures can be fitted. These extra procedures can affect the overall price.

Caring for Your Partial Dentures

Here are some tips that can help you take care of your partial dentures:

  • Clean your partial dentures every day
    We recommend cleaning your partial dentures every day. Just like normal teeth, plaque and tartar can develop on the dentures, leading to oral health troubles.
     

  • Brushing partial dentures
    Brush your partial dentures two times every day using a brush and liquid soap. Avoid using toothpaste, as it's very corrosive and might cause damage to your dentures. This ensures that your dentures stay in an ideal and healthy state.
     

  • Soaking partial dentures
    Soak your partial dentures once every day for 20 minutes or overnight in a special cleaner provided by your denturist. You can also use a half-and-half combination of white vinegar and water. Soaking keeps the germs and bacteria away, keeping your dentures sparkling and clean.

 

CUSTOMIZED APPROACH

 

What sets partial dentures apart from other types is that they're highly personalized. When you come to us for your partial dentures, we provide you with a hands-on approach. Our team of experienced denturists goes over your teeth, dental health, lifestyle, and budget to craft partial dentures for you. The final dentures will fit your unique needs.
