What Are Partial Dentures and Who Can Benefit From Them?
They are an excellent option for patients missing one or more teeth. They are removable appliances that can be taken out and put back in as needed. We can use partial dentures to replace either a single tooth or multiple teeth, and we will carefully customize them to match the color and shape of your natural teeth comfortably.
The Benefits of Partial Dentures
- Partial dentures have several benefits, including:
- Improving your ability to chew and speak
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
- Supporting your facial tissues
- Preventing your natural teeth from shifting
How to Care for Your Partial Dentures
They can be removed at night and cleaned with a soft toothbrush. Avoid using toothpaste, as it can be abrasive and damage the partial denture. You can also soak your partial denture in a denture cleaning solution at least once a day to keep it clean and free of bacteria.
Types of Partial Dentures Available at Newman Dental
We offer two types of partial dentures: fixed and removable. Fixed partial dentures are cemented into place, while removable partial dentures are held in place by various methods, for example, metal clasps that attach to your natural teeth. We will work with you to determine the best type of partial denture for your needs.
What to Expect During the Appointment Process
During your initial consultation, Dr. Newman and the Newman Dental team will examine your mouth and take X-rays to determine if they are the right solution. We will also discuss your dental goals and budget to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs.
If you decide to move forward with treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth and gums to create your custom partial denture. Once your partial denture is complete, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure that it fits well and that you are happy with the results.
How Much Do Partial Dentures Cost?
The cost will vary depending on the type of denture you choose and the complexity of your treatment. We want to make high-quality dental services affordable and accessible to everyone, so we work with most major dental insurance providers. We also accept low-interest financing from CareCredit. CareCredit is a payment plan provider endorsed by the American Dental Association (ADA.)
How Long After Extraction Can I Get a Partial Denture?
The timeline for getting a partial denture will depend on the type of denture you choose and your individual treatment plan. In most cases, we can place a temporary, removable partial denture as soon as your teeth have been extracted and your gums have healed. We will need to wait until your gums have fully healed before placement for a permanent fixed partial denture.
Can I Get a Partial Denture With No Back Teeth?
Yes. They are an excellent solution for patients with various dental issues, including those who are missing multiple back teeth. No matter the location or number of your missing teeth, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Newman Dental. We’ll offer some informative recommendations so that you fully understand which options are available and how we can best restore your smile.
