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. At Postings Denture Clinic Ltd., we 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 can 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
Partial dentures are a type of denture used to replace one or more 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.
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 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:
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.
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.
We follow a straightforward approach to construct your partial dentures. It includes:
Fabrication: Your denturist takes careful impressions of your mouth 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 mouth. 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.
