What are Dentures?
These are dental devices that are used to replace missing teeth. These prosthetic devices use the surrounding hard and soft tissues within the oral cavity to support them.
What are Partial Dentures?
The dentist recommends partial dentures to the patient who might have lost many teeth (not all) or to replace a single tooth or a few teeth. These removable partial denture can be used as an alternative to dental crowns or bridges.
Partial dentures comprise of a number of false teeth attached to a pink or gum-coloured base, which could be plastic, nylon or metal plate. Metal clasps are used to attach them to the patient’s natural teeth and is placed securely inside the mouth.
Partial Dentures, being removable, are easily unclipped and removed whenever necessary.
Denture Making Process
(For steps, refer complete dentures)
Partial dentures are made using nearly all the steps as complete dentures. Partial Denture manufacturing process and the fitting of a denture in a patient’s mouth might take a few weeks. It also requires the patient in keeping a couple of appointments with the dentist, before the final denture is fabricated and adjusted.
Initially, the impressions of the patient’s mouth are taken in order to make dentures that will fit the mouth of the patient perfectly. The dentist will then order a trial denture to be made by the manufacturer first. This will be tried in the patient’s mouth and the fit and appearance are examined closely.
