WHAT ARE PARTIAL DENTURES?
Partial dentures are a type of denture that is used to replace multiple missing teeth in the upper and lower portion of your mouth. Along with giving you a reason to smile brightly, they are used to enhance the functionality of your mouth by improving the speaking and chewing ability of the wearer. 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 a combination 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, but depending upon the location, the number of teeth, durability and budget, a professional denturist decides which one is best for you. There are three types of removable partial dentures available with us, including:
Cast metal partial dentures: It is the most common type of removable partial dentures made up of a mixture of metals including titanium. Cast metal partial dentures consist of a gum-coloured pink acrylic base along with the false teeth that are 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 are resistant to plaque buildup over time.
Flexible partial dentures: These are made up 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 who are allergic to acrylic material but cannot be repaired if once broken, so are used only as a temporary solution.
Acrylic partial dentures: It consists of a removable acrylic base, an optional metal clasp and plastic teeth. These are the least expensive type of partials, can offer aesthetic appeal to your teeth but are not meant to last long.
Metal partials are considered stronger structurally, thinner, and more hygienic than acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are usually recommended as transitional or temporary partial. Read our blogs to get a better idea about 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 that you can speak and smile properly. Partial dentures can also help you with chewing, which is critical for your digestion. Some advantages of partial dentures are:
It can prevent the movement of other teeth due to the loss of 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 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 of 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, if this is not an option, a complete denture may be the best solution for you. If you are looking for a denturist in Victoria, BC, get in touch with us today.
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. By not opting for partial dentures, you run the risk of creating even bigger problems for yourself down the road. Leaving the gaps in your smile can cause teeth to shift out of alignment, resulting in some changes in the shape of your smile. You will also likely have difficulty in chewing. Filling in those missing teeth can help to preserve tooth alignment, preserve a proper bite, and give you a full and beautiful smile to show off. Getting partial dentures from either of our clinics in Victoria, Sidney or Langford is a great option for replacing missing teeth.

Clean your dentures every day. Plaque and tartar can build up on false teeth, just like they do on natural teeth.
Brush dentures twice daily with a denture brush and liquid soap. Do not brush dentures with toothpaste! It is very abrasive and can damage your denture.
Soak dentures once daily for 20 minutes (or overnight) in the special cleaner for false teeth provided to you by your denturist, or in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water.
