PARTIAL DENTURES

Partial Dentures in Victoria BC

Losing one or some of your teeth can be bothersome. Not only does this loss change your appearance, but it affects daily activities such as eating, smiling and speaking. Partial dentures will provide a solution to the issues caused by missing teeth. We at Postings Denture Clinic Ltd. provide a range of dentures, including high-quality partial dentures in Victoria.

 

A partial denture is a great solution to restore your smile to its original glory. A removable partial denture can replace one or more missing teeth. It is designed specifically to meet the needs of the patient. Partial dentures will restore your smile and let you enjoy your favourite food again. A partial denture can also help preserve your existing teeth; if one or more teeth are lost, the neighbouring teeth can shift into the open space (see video below). If you'd like to regain your confident smile with our partial dentures, please visit our clinic in Victoria, BC.

Teeth Shifting Due to Missing Tooth

What Are Partial Dentures?

 

Partial dentures are a type of dentures used to replace one or a few missing teeth. 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 can be constructed out of a combination of metal and acrylic or solely out of acrylic. Metal partials are considered stronger structurally, thinner, and more hygienic than an acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are usually recommended as a transitional or temporary partial.

 

The design process involved in creating a removable partial denture is specific to each patient’s needs. Your denturist will determine the appropriate treatment plan and the appropriate partial for you. Read our blog 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 a few of your teeth. They act as replacements for your teeth and ensure that you are able to speak and smile properly. Partial dentures also help with chewing, which is critical for your digestion. Some advantages of partial dentures are:

  • As mentioned before, losing some teeth can make the other ones in your mouth move around. Partial dentures prevent this movement from happening.
  • Removable partial dentures are less invasive than other types of dentures and easier to use.
  • Your partial dentures are adjustable, and we can add new teeth to them, depending on the material.
  • Partial dentures are more affordable.
  • The process of acquiring partial dentures is quick, which means that you don't have to go without teeth for a long period.

 

 

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 or Sidney is a great option for replacing missing teeth. When you have a new partial denture fabricated, you’re investing in a solution that is meant to last for a number of years. If you have any future issues with your dentures, you can always get in touch with us to get denture repairs or adjustments.

 

 

The Process

 

We follow a straightforward approach to construct your partial dentures. It includes:

  • Inspection: Our team takes a close look at your teeth and dental history. We also listen to your needs and what you expect from your dentures.
  • Crafting: Our team takes careful measurements of your jaw to create moulds. You might be asked to come in for fittings to make sure the dentures fit you. Once we take all the necessary measurements, we carefully construct your denture in our on-site lab.
  • Final appointment: At your final appointment, we place your dentures in your jaw. Our denturists will advise you on proper denture-care and what you should do to get the most out of your dentures.

We're always available for any questions you might have regarding your new dentures.

Caring for Your Partial Dentures

Here are some tips that can be helpful in taking care of your partial dentures:

  • 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.

 

Customized Approach

 

What sets partial dentures apart from other types of dentures 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 and lifestyle. We use high-grade materials to ensure that these dentures last a long time and stand prolonged use. However, if you do happen to need repairs, we can also take care of that. If you'd like to discuss your options with our team, please call us.
