Dentures and partials are prosthetic devices dentists use for replacing missing teeth.
Dentures are a complete set of prosthetic teeth that fit over the gums, replacing all of your teeth in the upper or lower part of your jaw. Dentures are made of acrylic or resin and can be fixed or removable.
Partials are prosthetic teeth that fill in gaps between missing teeth. They usually consist of a metal framework with artificial teeth that match your natural teeth. Most partials are removable, but your dentist at Hallmark Dental can make fixed partials that stay securely in your mouth.
Your dentist at Hallmark Dental determines if you’re a candidate for dentures or partials after a dental examination. The team may recommend dentures if you’re missing all of your teeth from the upper or lower jaw.
If you’re only missing some teeth, you might benefit from partials.
Hallmark Dental has other options for missing teeth, including dental implants and bridges. They can talk to you about all these treatments and help you make the most informed decision on how you want to proceed.
Dentures and partials are affordable options for replacing missing teeth.
Your dentist at Hallmark Dental first prepares your mouth for your dentures or partials. This may include tooth extractions. Then, they take a mold of your mouth and send it to the lab to make your prosthetic device.
When ready, you return to the office for your denture or partial fitting. The team also provides guidance on how to care for your prosthetic devices at home, including cleaning and storage (for removable devices).
Dentures and partials offer many benefits. They improve your ability to speak and eat and enhance your appearance and self-esteem.
Hallmark Dental schedules regular follow-up visits to monitor your oral health and adjust your treatment as needed.
Without teeth or stimulation from a dental implant, your jawbone may change, affecting the fit of your dentures or partial, so you may need replacement devices over time.
