Partial Dentures Q & A

What are partial dentures?

A partial denture is a fixed or removable device personalized to fit your mouth that has replacements for missing teeth. The replacement teeth are attached to a gum-colored base to add to your smile naturally.

How do partial dentures attach to your mouth?

Partial dentures make the most of your natural teeth, using them as an anchor to hold the device in place. They can be attached by a metal component, holding them in the correct position.

You can also choose the option of flexible partial dentures which are virtually invisible — they hide the anchor used by partial dentures — helping even more with the aesthetics of your smile.

What are the benefits of partial dentures?

Partial dentures are a great way to restore your smile fully. Robert Cain, LD draws on his years of experience to create this inexpensive, low-cost fix for missing teeth. Here are some other benefits of partial dentures:

  • Help restore your bite, making chewing easier

  • Prevent natural teeth from moving

  • Support your facial muscles properly, resulting in a younger look

  • Improve speech by eliminating open spaces in your mouth

How do I care for my partial dentures?

One of the best ways you can prevent gum disease is to keep your partial dentures clean and free of food particles that can irritate tissues surrounding the device.

It’s necessary to brush the dentures every day, which helps with staining as well as removing plaque. You should purchase a toothbrush specially designed for dentures, as the soft bristles are arranged to maximize their cleaning capability.

Other than that, you only need dish or hand soap for the cleaning, as toothpastes are considered too abrasive.

For best results, follow these steps:

  • Place a stopper in the sink or lay a towel under the area you’re working
  • Rinse first to remove any food particles
  • Apply the dish detergent or soap to the denture brush
  • Gently brush all the surfaces of your partial dentures
  • Rinse thoroughly
