Partial Dentures

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are dental prosthetic options designed for individuals missing one or several teeth, but not all. They play a crucial role in oral health, restoring functionality for eating and speaking, while also providing aesthetic benefits by filling in gaps. These removable fixtures are typically constructed from a blend of metal and acrylic, lending them a balance of strength and a natural appearance. Dentists customize partial dentures for each patient, ensuring a comfortable fit and a seamless blend with remaining teeth.

Our experienced dental team ensures a comfortable fit and a natural look, enhancing not just your smile but also your overall quality of life. Visit us to explore how partial dentures can restore the full function and appearance of your teeth.

Understanding Partial Dentures and Their Benefits

A partial denture replaces missing teeth, solving functional and aesthetic issues. It includes false teeth on a gum-colored base, made durable for easy use. Removable for cleaning, it’s a quicker alternative to dental implants. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures can clasp onto neighboring teeth for a seamless smile restoration.

What is a Removable Partial Denture?

A removable partial denture fills gaps from missing teeth, a practical option for those not needing a full denture. Partials are secured by clasps around natural teeth, ensuring stability for daily activities. Patients at Forest Hills Dental can choose from various types made of materials like metal, acrylic, or a combination to suit their needs and budgets. Here’s a closer look at common partial denture types available.

Cast Metal Partial Dentures

Cast Metal Partial Dentures

Durable and resistant to wear, these are made with a metal framework and high-quality acrylic teeth.

Acrylic Partial Dentures

Often used as a temporary solution, these are less expensive and can be fabricated quickly.

Flexible Partial Dentures

Made with a flexible plastic material, they offer a comfortable and aesthetic alternative, eliminating the need for metal clasps.

What is a Fixed Partial Denture?

Fixed partial dentures, or “fixed bridges,” offer a semi-permanent restorative solution for those missing one or more teeth. Unlike removable dentures, fixed partial dentures are designed to stay in place constantly; hence, they do not require nightly removal. It is essential, however, to maintain diligent oral hygiene to clean them properly, as they become a permanent part of your dental structure.

Fixed Bridge

Ideal for individuals with one or two missing teeth, the fixed bridge acts as a permanent partial that remains in the mouth at all times. The process entails preparing the adjacent healthy teeth to hold the crowns that support the bridge, which can be its main drawback as it involves altering these teeth.

Implant-Supported Fixed Bridge

For those looking for an alternative to fixed bridges without impacting healthy teeth, consider the implant-supported fixed bridge. Biocompatible titanium posts are placed as a durable foundation for the bridge. Although it may require a higher upfront cost, the long-term advantages include durability and natural performance, potentially lasting a lifetime.

Benefits of Partial Dentures

Partial dentures provide a multitude of advantages for those who are missing teeth and seeking a practical solution to reclaim the functionality and aesthetics of their natural smile.

Enhance Your Oral Health and Confidence

Partial dentures offer several benefits for individuals with missing teeth, including:

  • Restored ability to chew and speak properly
  • Prevention of further dental issues, such as an uneven bite and tooth decay
  • Improved aesthetics and confidence in your smile
