When all of the natural teeth have been removed, one way to replace them is with conventional dentures.
A partial denture replaces one or usually multiple missing teeth; it is similar to a dental bridge that is removable by the patient. The remaining teeth that hold the partial in should be healthy, and some dental work may be required to ensure that the partial will fit well and last for years to come. When you get an estimate for a removable partial denture, make sure you know what type of materials your partial denture or complete denture (dental plate) will be made of. The dental materials can consist of Acrylic only, Acrylic with Metal Framework or Flexible Nylon. The teeth can be made plastic or porcelain. In most cases, dental work may be required to insure the remaining teeth are healthy support before we make your partial denture. Healthy supporting teeth will ensure you have a partial that will last for many years to come. If extractions are required, it’s best to let the gums heal before the partial is made. If you need front teeth extractions you don’t want to be seen with any missing teeth, a temporary acrylic partial ( or flipper ) is a good temporary solution.
