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.
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:
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.
Complete dentures are a set of removable dentures that replace your missing teeth in either the upper or the lower jaw. They give you complete coverage and consist of the artificial teeth and their denture base.
Complete dentures may rest directly on the gum that covers the bone or it can be fitted over implants. During your initial consultation, the denturist will recommend solutions for you to consider and will also inform you about the process involved in designing an accurate denture for you.
The process of creating complete dentures involves a multi-step procedure that requires up to three to six weeks. Our denturist will take an impression of your upper and lower jaw. These impressions are used to create models of secondary impressions that are customized according to the shape of your mouth. Many adjustments are made to the impressions and only then the final denture is cast and adjusted in your mouth. You can try it on and make the desired adjustments to the shape, colour, and fit before it’s finalized.

Whether or not partial dentures are better than bridges for you depends entirely on your oral health, condition of your existing teeth, lifestyle and budget. For instance, partial dentures might be better if you have several missing teeth in a row.
