Dr. Jigna. T. Thakkar, DDS, explains over here what are Partial Dentures,
and who may need them.
A removable partial denture is usually made to replace one or more missing
teeth teeth, where you can keep your existing teeth, and wear a partial
denture to the locations of missing teeth.
The Removable Partial Denture is customized to a patient’s speci_c requirements.
Removable partial dentures restore a person’s natural appearance
and greatly improve the ability to chew and speak clearly.
Partial dentures is not intended to harm remaining natural teeth. A partial
denture may prevent your natural teeth from shifting or drifting into the
space left by the tooth loss. In fact, a partial denture may help maintain the
position of your natural teeth by providing them with additional support.
Your partial denture is an inexpensive solution to the problem of missing
teeth and is designed to comfortably _ll gaps left by missing teeth.
The number of teeth remaining, the position and the stability of the teeth are
only a few of the factors that help to determine what style or type of partial
denture would be best for you.
Depending on the teeth remaining in your oral cavity for anchorage, partial
dentures may be completely tooth supported, tissue/tooth supported, and
Partial dentures can be constructed out of a metal and acrylic composition
or completely out of acrylic or flexible thermoplastic.
The design process involved in creating a removable partial (denture) is
specific to the patient’s needs.
Partials can be made of different materials, including acrylics, a metal/acrylic combination or flexible thermoplastics
Acrylic partials are usually recommended as a transitional or temporary replacement of missing teeth, depending on your personal circumstances.
