Partial Dentures are a great option when a person is missing a tooth or has partial teeth missing. Partial dentures are a great option, in that they affix to the remaining teeth making them more comfortable, more stable, and more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. However keep in mind if you are missing all your teeth partial dentures would not be an option for you.
The teeth that you have remaining act as an anchor for your partial dentures and help them stay in place. Partial dentures are made from different combinations of material for strength and stability. They are made from a mixture of different materials such as plastic, resin, and metal.
Different Types of Partial Dentures
There are many different ways to design your partial dentures. One of the most common ones is cast metal partial dentures. These types of dentures are very strong and are designed to last for many years. The metal frame is concerning to some people, but the metal is covered in plastic that matches the color of the gum. They can also make the clips that attach the denture to your remaining teeth with tooth colored material so they are not noticeable at all or hardly noticeable.
Flexible partial dentures are another option. They are a little less sturdy, but tend to be enjoyed more for their comfort and flexibility. These dentures are made from a very natural looking nylon material, making them look even more realistic.
Partial dentures are designed with cleanliness in mind. They are all removable so that you can keep your mouth and teeth clean. Keep in mind that all dentures are designed with you as the patient in mind. Partial dentures are a good option if you are missing several teeth in the back of the mouth as well.
Denture cost will vary, depending on how many teeth you are missing, the type of partial dentures needed, and your overall dental health. It is also to know what your dental insurance will cover, so please call Dr. Roe to discuss your treatment, the cost of your treatment and what financing options we have available.
