A partial denture is a natural-looking replacement for one or more missing teeth. This type of denture is either made entirely from acrylic or a combination of metal and acrylic. It can either be removable or partially attached to either crowns or clips. A partial denture is an option for someone who does not want an invasive surgery. Implants are the best alternative for a partial denture because they offer patients a more permanent and esthetically pleasing solution to missing teeth.
What to expect with a partial denture?
At first, a partial denture may feel odd or bulky in your mouth because you are not used to it. It will take some practice inserting and removing the partial denture before you are comfortable with it, and over time you will be able to identify if any adjustments are needed. A partial denture will make eating a more pleasant experience and may even help improve your pronunciation of words. Our doctors will walk you through caring for your partial denture and discuss adjustments with you.
