If you have missing teeth 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. Aesthetic appearance and speech is restored along with the ability to eat confidently and efficiently. A partial denture can also help to preserve the natural placement of your existing teeth; if one or more teeth are lost, the neighbouring teeth can shift into the open space (see video below). Visit our clinic in Victoria, BC, to regain your confident smile with our partial dentures.
Teeth Shifting Due to Missing Tooth
Depending on the teeth remaining in your oral cavity, partial dentures may be completely tooth supported, tissue/tooth supported, and/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.
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 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.
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.
