A partial denture is removable and is supported by your natural teeth and gums. It’s held in place with special retainers or clasps to keep it secure. What’s more partial dentures are so subtle, people won’t even notice.
If you have most of your natural teeth and are only looking to replace a few that are missing, then a partial denture may be right for you.
A partial denture is custom designed filling the spaces left by missing teeth and is sure to bring a smile to your face!
Partial dentures can also increase the longevity of your existing teeth by balancing wear and tear. Other reasons for wearing a partial denture are to help prevent gaps from developing between your natural teeth, to reduce the load on individual teeth and enhance mastication (chewing).
Partial dentures require extreme precision and David Ayton’s considerable experience helps to achieve this for you. Before you make any decision, David will talk with you in depth about various options and guide you through the entire process.
Partial dentures come in three main types and a brief overview of each is found below:
Acrylic Partial Dentures
Acrylic Partial Dentures are best suited when there is a probability of further tooth loss or budget is a major factor.
Metal Partial Dentures
Metal Partial Dentures are, in most cases, superior to acrylic partial dentures, as they are thinner, stronger, smaller and more reliable. The metal base is not seen. Metal Partial Dentures are generally the most expensive of the partial dentures.
Flexible Partial Dentures
Flexible Partial Dentures are ideal when other types may not be suitable. They are nice to wear, and clear clasps are popular. Flexible Partial Dentures are not as durable as acrylic or Metal Partial Dentures
