Partial Dentures

PARTIAL DENTURES

Are your missing teeth causing difficulty eating? Are you worried about the appearance of your smile? Restoring your quality of life is something that our team strives for by making sure you are comfortable with your new smile.

We provide partial dentures that are a combination of metal and acrylic, which provides the strength to properly function and chew. The metalwork used for partials is chrome cobalt, and it doesn’t harm any of your existing teeth. We will help you select the right partial denture for your unique needs.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

A partial denture is removable and looks similar to the missing natural teeth, attached to the gum. The artificial acrylic teeth are most commonly connected to the metal framework by acrylic.

Steps to be followed:

​Our team will assess your best course of treatment and make recommendations that best suit your partial denture needs.

​After a couple of appointments, your new smile will be complete. No more missing teeth! 

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Immediate dentures are dentures that are placed into your mouth immediately after all your natural teeth are removed.

We like to see our patients approximately 24 to 48 hours after extractions to monitor for any sore spots and to ensure that your tissue is healing properly. 

After your natural teeth are extracted, it can take anywhere from 6 months to a year for your tissue to fully recover.

Throughout the recovery process, tissue conditioners are placed into the denture for comfort and better fit.  

​After your gums have completely healed, a final reline will be completed.

Lastly, we are a comfortable wheelchair-accessible facility, so you don’t have to worry about any inconvenience during your visits. For more information about partial and immediate dentures, contact us now.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU PLACE IMMEDIATE DENTURES AFTER HAVING YOUR NATURAL TEETH REMOVED?

Sore Areas With Dentures

An appointment will be made with us 24-48 hours after your extraction appointment. We request you to not remove your dentures until after this appointment. The initial two to four weeks after extraction and placement of your new dentures are the most crucial and difficult time to adjust to immediate dentures. There will be bleeding and swelling due to the extensive trauma. If you find it necessary to remove your dentures because of excessive soreness, re-insert the dentures 24 hours before your appointment for the adjustment. This will help us identify the pressure areas and adjust the denture accordingly. The number of adjustment visits to the office varies from person to person.

 

Speaking With Dentures

Speaking with your dentures requires practice and patience. Reading is an effective method of learning how to pronounce words. Practicing words or sounds that seem to give you the most difficulty will help in faster recovery. It will take time for your tongue to learn the different positions necessary to make good speech sounds with your new dentures.

 

Chewing With Dentures

It will take about six to eight weeks to learn how to chew with your new dentures. At first, limit your diet to soft foods that are easy to chew. Gradually learn to eat foods that are more difficult.

  • Cut food into small pieces

  • Take small bites and chew slowly 

  • Learn to chew on both sides of your dentures at the same time 

  • Train your muscles to assist in keeping your dentures in place

 

Initially you may not be able to taste food with dentures but you will regain the taste after a period of time. Do not be alarmed at the greater amounts of saliva in your mouth during the first few weeks of wearing your dentures. This condition will correct itself, as you become accustomed to wearing them.

 

Oral Hygiene With Dentures

You should leave your denture out of your mouth for at least eight hours a day in order to allow the tissues to rest from the pressures placed on them by the dentures. Failure to allow the tissues to rest can result in chronic irritation to the tissues, the development of certain fungal infections and rapid loss of bone. 

 

How to Care for Your Dentures

It is important that your dentures be kept clean. Unclean dentures can result in irritation to the tissue and unpleasant odors. It’s preferable to use a non-abrasive cleanser, as you do not want to alter the surface of the dentures.

 

Please closely follow the instructions given with the product if you are using a commercial cleanser. These cleansers are not designed for use in the mouth. Typically, the denture should be soaked for a maximum of 20 minutes and rinsed thoroughly before being placed in the mouth again. Dentures should only be soaked overnight in clean water. 

 

Reline

Your dentures may become a little loose and tissue conditioner can be placed as a temporary solution until the tissue has fully healed. It is crucial to have your final permanent reline of dentures about six months to a year after your extraction date. Over the years, the tissue will slowly continue to heal. So it is not uncommon for another reline to be needed years after the initial permanent reline. This varies among patients because people heal differently.
