What is a partial denture?

partial dentures calgary nw

Depending on the teeth remaining in your oral cavity, partial dentures may be completely tooth supported, tissue/tooth supported, or implant/tissue supported. Partial dentures can be constructed out of a metal and acrylic composition or completely out of acrylic.

The design process involved in creating a removable partial denture may be very specific to the patient’s overall needs. Every effort is made to design a self-cleansing partial denture that preserves the remaining teeth and oral structures.

About partial dentures

When a partial denture is designed, the denturist acknowledges that chewing may place a strain on the remaining teeth during eating. Partial dentures are designed with this in mind and so that the chewing forces can be distributed evenly over the remaining teeth and soft tissues. Design modifications to your remaining teeth may be required to help equalize these forces.

Metal partials are considered stronger structurally, thinner and more hygienic than an acrylic partial. Acrylic partials are usually recommended as a transitional or temporary partial. Your denturist will help you to determine the appropriate treatment plan and the appropriate partial for your specific dental need.

A removable partial denture may help preserve the natural tooth placement of your existing teeth. It may help to ensure proper chewing and better digestion by helping you to thoroughly grind your food. A properly designed partial denture will help to support your existing teeth. A removable partial denture can help to add more life enjoyment overall!

What are the benefits of a removable partial denture?

The largest single advantage to this type of RPD (aside from the cost) is that new teeth and new denture base can easily be added to an existing treatment RPD. These are frequently fabricated even if the remaining teeth have existing decay or periodontal disease and their prognosis may thus be doubtful. If some of the existing natural teeth are extracted for any reason later in the course of treatment, new false teeth can be added quickly to the partial, helping to maintain the patient’s appearance!
