Customized Partial Denture Services
Partial dentures are fitted perfectly with the alignment of your natural teeth and are used in place of missing teeth. Made from a combination of metal and acrylic or entirely out of plastic, these dentures provide a natural-looking appearance and great support to your teeth. A partial denture is designed according to the patient’s oral structures and may be completely tooth supported or held by precision attachments.
The process of creating partial dentures depends on various factors. In most cases, if the areas surrounding the missing teeth have existing root tips, they need to be extracted first. Following this, our denturist will take impressions of the ridges designed to help you bite and chew your food. A partial denture will fill the spaces created by the gaps in your mouth. This will prevent your teeth from changing position. After some adjustments, the final set of dentures that complement your oral health and facial features is ready within four to six dental visits.
Who Needs Partial Dentures?
Those who've lost a few of their teeth in the upper or lower jaw can benefit from partial dentures. Some common reasons for losing teeth that we replace with partial dentures include:
Trauma such as that from an injury
Generally, partial dentures are suitable if you still have remaining natural teeth that are healthy. They might even be ideal if you're not a good candidate for bridges or dental implants. To get a better idea, please speak to our denturists in Langley. We also provide precision and standard dentures.
